Sympathy

Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father God, we thank you for your mercy and your grace. You loved us even in our sins to send your son to die, that we may live. We also thank you for not making allowances or excuses for us when we fall. Keep us aware that our sinfulness not only affects us, but everyone around us. Help us to confess our brokenness to those who are part of our spiritual family so that we may be healed. Break down the barriers that we have built and remind us that the masks we wear only prolongs the freedom that you have gifted us with! In turn, let our love to others be sincere. Show us how to hate what is evil and to cling to what is good. Remind us that a lost world is watching, waiting for us to show them the true Jesus, the one true Shepherd of the flock. In Jesus name, amen.
