Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we give you thanks for creating us in Your image. We also thank you for the offer of eternal life through your son Jesus Christ and for the gift of the Holy Spirit that lives in us. As we strive daily to seek you with all our hearts, our desire is to know you and to walk with you. Yet, in this journey, we all fail miserably! We ask that you show us how to reflect your perfect love to those around us. For, “Holy, there is no one like you, there is none beside you. Open up our eyes in wonder. Show us who You are and fill us with your heart. And lead us in Your love to those around us.” Then Lord, when we look in the mirror each morning, show us that the reflection in the mirror is You. All glory to You in Jesus’ mighty name, amen.
