Day of God, Draw Nigh

In the path of your judgments, O Lord, we wait for you.

Isaiah 26:8
O day of God, draw nigh
in beauty and in power;
come with thy timeless judgment now
to match our present hour.

Bring to our troubled minds,
uncertain and afraid,
the quiet of a steadfast faith,
calm of a call obeyed.

Bring justice to our land,
that all may dwell secure,
and finely build for days to come
foundations that endure.

Bring to our world of strife
thy sovereign word of peace,
that war may haunt the earth no more,
and desolation cease.

All of us must appear before the judgment seat of Christ.
 2 Corinthians 5:10
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
O day of God, draw nigh
as at creation's birth;
let there be light again, and set
thy judgments on the earth.
 Robert B.Y. Scott (1899)
After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
