Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we thank you for how you watch over us and bless us, even when we don’t deserve it. We also thank you for creating us to serve you, and to join you in the work you do by trusting us to be “fishers of men”. Remind us that this is the job you have asked us all to do! And in the process, help each one of us to discover our purpose, and the gift that you want us to give away. Help us to see that we each have a ministry and a mission in this world. Open our eyes to see the people that you want us make friends with the same way that we became your friend. Then show us how to help them follow you, to know you, and to share you. Use our life story, with the life message that you gave us to fish for them…in Jesus’ name, amen.
