A Priceless Inheritance - The One Year Daily Prayer

A Priceless Inheritance

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.

1 Peter 1:3-4

Prayer keeps our hearts turned heavenward, while our feet remain firmly on this earth. Peter prayed for Christians facing persecution and rejection by their neighbors. He prayed to remind them of the prize awaiting them in heaven—even as they struggled here on earth.

Let your own troubled heart soar with wonderful expectation of all the treasures awaiting you in heaven. Let this prayer take your mind off the cares and struggles of this world. Refresh your soul with thoughts of the pure, undefiled inheritance reserved for you in heaven—an inheritance that cannot be destroyed.

  • Dear Lord, I praise you for the priceless inheritance that is kept in heaven for me . . .
