Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we see Your goodness, and we watch as You answer prayers and change lives all around us. Even though we know that You are sovereign, we hold back, and consequently forfeit the fullness of Your blessings. You created us to be choosers, and You allow us to take our Christian experience as far as we want it to go. So, we ask for Your power to give us the boldness to evangelize, and to do it well. We thank You for giving Jesus as our example to connect with the lost. Like Him, we want to reach to the very core of people, but we need You to remind us to check our motives. Break our hearts for those who are lost and then equip us to draw them into Your family. Supply us with the patience we need to listen, discernment to care for their needs, and then give us the tools we need to ask questions. Help us to intentionally cross lines to stir up the emotions so transformation takes place. And we give You the glory, in Jesus name, amen.
