Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 1 Cor 13:4-5

Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father God, we are so thankful that you made us to be ambassadors for Christ to this lost and dying world. And as we journey on our daily walk, help us to think of the church as the Embassy of Heaven. Teach us how to live like Christ, so we can show the world who you are. Even though we know that Christ died for all, we sometimes act like he only died for certain people and we regard them from a worldly point of view. Forgive us when we live self-absorbed lives and guide us to be the ministers of reconciliation that you designed us to be! Only then can the world experience your love through us as we speak about your son Jesus Christ and the gift of his sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. In Jesus’ holy name, amen.
