Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, thank you for the blessings you show us when we attend to those things that you reveal to us. We ask that you continue to show us the way of life, and grant us the joy of your presence, and the pleasures of living with you forever. For it is only through the cross that we find freedom and power in the blood. We know that the whip represented freedom in our body; the thorns, freedom in our mind; the nails, freedom in our hands; and the spear, freedom in our heart. As we find ourselves carrying around the guilt and shame you paid the ultimate price for, remind us to embrace the freedoms that are represented at the cross. Hallelujah! We give you all in the glory in Jesus’ holy name, amen.
