40 Days of Prayer: Day 5

Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

Dear God,

As these days go on, I find this verse to be so reassuring. You are the strength of my heart. There really is nothing on this earth worth desiring. Of course, I am grateful to You for what You have given me, but I long for my real home, for life eternal in Your presence. This world has nothing for me, and I thank You that You have prepared a place for me in heaven. Lord, I long for Your returning. Please keep my eyes focused on You while I wait for Your appearing.

In Your Name,
