Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord, we offer our thanks for leaving us a legacy of men who were faithful and who served you well. You told us their life stories and you didn’t omit the details of their times in the valleys that led them through many trials. You showed us how you guided them through the darkness and then blessed them despite themselves. Father, we thank you for the riches, the blessings, and the trials you have also shown us! Thank you for guiding us to choose life over death, that we may be a witness to all those we encounter. Show us how to reach back and guide our children and others to do the same. Forgive us when we become complacent and think we have finished the race. Give us the determination of an overcomer and keep us running toward the finish line….not toward a physical prize, but toward You! In Jesus name, amen.
