'COME, LORD JESUS' (Revelation 22:20), is perhaps one of the simplest prayers that can be prayed and also one of the most dangerous prayers! As I taught on Sunday regarding the Fear of the Lord and His judgment, to pray this prayer requires a number of things, let me spell them our really quick...


  • People who pray, 'Come, Lord Jesus' have a deep sense of humility because they know they deserve God's judgment but have received only grace upon grace upon grace! 
  • People who pray, 'Come, Lord Jesus' share the same heart of love as the Father, and rather than using it as a call for vengeance, it moves them to a greater urgency to persuade the lost to come under God's grace!
  • People who pray, 'Come, Lord Jesus' are busy walking in the light of the good works God prepared in advance for us to do so that others may see our light and be drawn to the Father!

In other words, I can't pray, MARANATHA, COME, LORD JESUS if I am not willing to be humble, if I am not willing to share the gospel, and if I am not doing the good works God has prepared for me. So I guess we can say that prayer is not an isolated practice, but it has big implications on HOW we live our day-to-day lives and the attitude of our hearts must be aligned with God's heart! This week, consider the implications of your prayers.
