Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel went up, and they saw the God of Israel. There was under his feet as it were a pavement of sapphire stone, like the very heaven for clearness. And he did not lay his hand upon the chief men of the people of Israel; they beheld God, and they ate and drank.—Exodus 24:9-11
We praise You Holy Father, for Your goodness and care and that You never leave nor forsake us in this life. And more than that, because You come to us as unworthy as we are, and make Yourself known to us time and again.
When You appeared to Moses and the elders of Israel You came upon a pavement of sapphire as clear as the heavens. You came and stood among them and they were in Your presence. They ate and drank and were refreshed. You brought a little piece of heaven with You!
One day we will all live in heaven and tread upon the crystal pavement of sapphire. Until that time may You bring a little piece of heaven to us. Whenever You are with us in our prayers, our praise, and our worship bring a little piece of heaven! In our daily life may we possess the love, joy, and peace of heaven and share it freely with others.
O Lord, bring heaven to us if only for a brief moment throughout our life and days. Cause Your face to shine upon us; the light and glory of heaven to refresh us on our journey and use us to bring heaven to others as we are able.
Lord, today I pray for those who could use a little piece of heaven in their lives and in their day right now. I pray for the disheartened and low in spirit; how they could use a little piece of heaven today!
Note: As you continue your prayers remember, a little piece of heaven for those on earth could mean that Jesus Himself will visit others with healing, strength, hope, courage, patience, help to cope or overcome, joy, peace of mind, ease of troubles, etc. Pray for others to have a little piece of heaven as the Spirit brings to mind. Some who might come to mind during your prayers are:
Family and Friends
The unloved and abandoned
The orphaned and lonely
The widowed and grieving
The depressed and suicidal,
The hungry and homeless and displaced,
Those being held against their will
The sick and dying
The guilty and ashamed
Individuals you know who are experiencing trial and difficulty
May God bless you and others through your prayers and bring a little piece of heaven to each one!
