Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord God, your love for us is beyond our human comprehension, and we willingly receive your offer of mercy and grace. You reach out to those whom we judge to be unreachable, you love those who are unlovable, and you touch those who are untouchable. Lord your ways appear scandalous to we who hold ourselves in higher regard than others. Forgive our self-righteous attitude and remind us that we cannot separate your son Jesus from the message. For the message is not about our goodness and how righteous we appear on the outside, it is all about you and YOUR goodness. Remind us that we can never be good enough because Kingdom righteousness is an inside-out job. We need to look deep inside our hearts to see our own sinfulness and stop trying to fool others with our works. Thank you again for your scandalous love for us, in Jesus’ name, amen.
