Today our focus will be on God’s Kingdom. Consider praying that as followers of Jesus we would submit to God’s will and reign in our own hearts and lives. Reflect on ways you can more fully welcome God’s kingdom in your own heart, also in your actions and ultimately in your allegiance. Reflect on areas of your life you still need to surrender to God and more freely follow Jesus. Consider praying also that the spiritual reality of God’s kingdom would become a physical reality.
Matthew 6:9-10: Our Father, dwelling in the heavenly realms, may the glory of your name be the center on which our lives turn. Manifest your kingdom realm, band cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is fulfilled in heaven.
Father, I thank you for Your work in my life. I continue to surrender to You every part of my life where I am still trying to maintain control. I pray to be more open to Your presence in my own heart. I pray that my actions would reflect You and Your will. I pray that my allegiance would be to You alone. I pray also that You would increase my awareness of Your Kingdom and how I can live my life more fully for it.
