Kingdom Prayer Focus

Abba father, we thank you for the faithfulness of those who came before us and built the foundation we now stand on. We also thank you for their obedience to the Holy Spirit’s leading, because we know that yesterday’s faithfulness and obedience, is today’s blessing for us! May we take the opportunity to learn from them, to continue telling their story and, like them, not grow weary in our service to you. Remind us that we need to continue building upon their spiritual foundation and stay faithful, so those behind us will reap blessings as well! We’re thankful for our history and for those who tell the stories about what a mighty God we serve! In Jesus name, amen.
