Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father God, thank you for making known to us the path of life and for filling us with the joy of your presence. Continue to open the eyes of our hearts to remind us of the hope to which you called us and the riches of your glorious inheritance in us. You created each one of us to be different, so that each of us can make a difference in the places you call us to. Oh Lord, that we may produce much fruit so our joy may be complete! And, if we’re not, help us to examine ourselves and discover the gift you gave us to use for your glory. Help us to use that gift well to serve one another, to become a servant – like you. Remind us that serving others IS serving you! For how we serve, is how we worship. You tell us in your word to call to you and that you will answer. Help us to make a difference, in Jesus name, amen.
