Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father God, thank you for the freedoms you have given us through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Forgive us when abuse that freedom, thinking we’ll find even greater liberty, only to find ourselves in bondage again. When will we learn that just because we can, doesn’t mean we should?? Oh, forgive us Lord! Remind us how to stay free by bringing us to a place of confession and community. Surround us with a few close friends; God-fearing, truth-talking friends, that we feel safe enough to confess our sins and receive healing and restoration through the Holy Spirit. Show us each and every day how to make an investment, make amends quickly, to know when to talk and when to walk, to risk being real, and above all - to be honest. In the name of Jesus, amen.
