Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, thank you for your light inside of us that shines to show others who you are. As we lead others to Jesus, we pray that they see us living our lives as children of light. We want to do the things that please you Lord, so we ask that help us to know you better! In these days of evil, we need wisdom to understand what your will is, for it’s only then we can boast that we know and understand you. And as we go, remind us that you have commanded us to baptize others, so in turn they learn to acknowledge you before others. Remind us that you are a friend, and you want to hear from us continually. Show us all how to remain a part of the vine, and as we listen to your voice, help us to know that you are the source of life! In Jesus name, amen.
