Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, thank you for bringing mankind to your garden and walking with them so we have a picture of what heaven will look like with you! We know that you are a merciful father, for when, like Adam and Eve, we hide in our sin, you still pursue us. We put up walls to avoid a relationship with you, yet you loved us enough to send Jesus to destroy the barrier that we created. We stand in need of your resurrection during these difficult times for it is our hope and our salvation. You suffered and paid for our sin to bring us back to a relationship with the Father. We thank you Lord for sending Jesus to restore us and for bringing us back into your garden. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
