Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we give you glory and praise, for making us a new creation when we first gave our lives to you. We thank you for your guidance as we learn each day to leave the old things behind us, and for showing us that all things have become new. As we see ourselves changing each day and growing in you, show us how to demonstrate that transformed life to those in need of Jesus as savior. Help us to get out of our own way and allow your Holy Spirit to do his work in us. We want to follow your decrees and to keep your laws, but so often we fail to relinquish control and try to accomplish this on our own. Help us to be so dependent on you that those who know us say, “it is no longer us who live, but Christ who lives in us”! To the praise of your glory, in Jesus’ name, amen.
