Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord God, we thank you for the desire you put in each one of us, to search for you, and to chase after you. Forgive us when we fail and start following so many things that are not of you. We are so easily deceived into thinking that the things we chase after will make us happy and will fulfill our needs, but ultimately destroy us and our testimonies. So, help us to strive for the unique giftings you have equipped each one of us with. Teach us how to use our gifts to unite and build up the body of Christ which, in turn, matures us and helps us to attain the whole measure and fullness of Christ. Lord, open the eyes of our hearts, so that we can see the riches of your glorious inheritance in ourselves. Show us our purpose in you and in knowing you as Savior. In Jesus name, amen.
