Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we thank You for instilling in us a desire for authentic community. We strive to love others like Jesus, even though we know that it will cost us something. Forgive us when we think some don’t deserve your love and when we are slothful in our zeal. There are times when we fail to do what needs to be done and we miss the opportunity to show others your glory. Selfish and sinful motives eventually produce selfish and sinful behavior. Help us to be fervent in spirit as we serve you. We want to be devoted to one another in brother love and to honor one another above ourselves. We long to hear “Good work! You did your job well. From now on be my partner” from you! What a blessing to be your partner, to have spiritual fervor, and to serve You wholeheartedly through Jesus Christ. In his holy name, amen.
