Day and night worship in the heavenly throne room
Keys to Prayer
We start our week by aligning our hearts with the four living creatures who are “full of eyes” – constantly adoring the King’s holiness and beauty – and the twenty-four elders who are constantly bowing in awe before Him.
- Ask the Lord to give you eyes only for Him. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light (Matthew 6:22)
- Ask Him to work in you a heart that stands in awe of His glory and worth.
Revelation 4:2, 6b-13
At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne. And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight. And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say,
“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
who was and is and is to come!”
And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they existed and were created.”
