Kingdom Prayer Focus

Dear Lord, thank you for asking us to be humble, to hold things loosely and to go the extra mile. It is a challenge for us to be insulted for Christ’s sake, but we know that violence is born of weakness, not strength.  We ask that you give us all the strength to start afresh, to overlook and overcome the struggles and obstacles that face us each day in different circumstances. It’s also a challenge to let go of things we own. Show us how to be generous with the blessings you’ve given us. Finally, you ask us to go the extra mile... Please help us to be patient with those around us and give us the courage to realize that it takes some time to begin relationships. God, we ask that you give us the humility required to seek your counsel and  represent you well in all of these situations! Let us examine ourselves and come to an understanding that it is ultimately the sin of pride that keeps us from seeing others through your eyes. Jesus, we need you every day and every moment, in your holy name, Amen.
