Praying for the glory of God

“Then Moses prayed, ‘Show me Your glory,’

“and the LORD replied:
‘I will bring My goodness before you,
and I will give you My Name, The LORD,
and I will
show grace and mercy
on whom grace and mercy will show,
but you cannot face Me fully now
(and still stand to live on earth.)

“And the LORD continued, ‘See!
Beside Me
you have a sure place
to stand,
and as My glory goes before you,
I will keep you safe
in the cleft of the rock,
and I will guard and shield you
with My hand.”
