These all died in faith, not having received the things promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth. For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city. (Hebrews 11:13-16)
We affirm dear Father that out citizenship is in heaven. Our desire is for your will to be done and your kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven. Our hearts cry out for a better country where pain and tears are no more. We pray dear Lord that you would make us instruments of heaven that we might be ones who ease the suffering of others and help to dry their tears. We praise you for the future hope of heaven and our present hope of heavenly ministry. To you belongs the glory and honor forever.
