Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord, we give You praise, and we worship Your Holy name. You are great, and greatly to be praised! We are not worthy, yet You call us Your children! Help us to realize what we have in You. For You have rescued us from the dominion of darkness and called us to a future in the inheritance of the saints. We kneel before You and acknowledge You as our maker. You are our God and we are the people that You watch over and have taken under Your care.  Show us how to better remember this. Show us how to commit to sharing the gospel with others, help us remember how to be a witness, and how to serve You better in our ministries. Remind us to keep Jesus at the forefront of all we do, and that this life we now live is all about him, and not us. Show us who You want us to disciple, and teach us to stay committed to a relationship with that person. And finally, Lord, show us how to pray for and encourage God’s people. Let the words on our lips be Your words! In Jesus name, Amen.
