Praying to a Righteous Judge

Here’s a picture of the God to whom we pray: The Ancient One sat down to judge. His clothing was as white a snow, his hair like purest wool. He sat on a fiery throne with wheels of blazing fire, and a river of fire was pouring out, flowing from his presence. Millions of angels ministered to him; many millions stood to attend him. Then the court began its sessions, and the books were opened (Daniel 7:9-10).

Seeing God as Judge influences my prayers:

I’m overwhelmed. I fall at his feet. He says, do not be afraid (Revelation 1:17).

I’m amazed He pays so much attention to me. His ears are attentive to my cry (Psalm 34:15).

I’m confident that the Judge of all the earth will always do right (Genesis 25:18). He’s not afraid to say no to me.

I’m filled with praise. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth (Psalm 57:11).

I want to worship and obey. One day all rulers will (Daniel 7:27).
