God’s kingdom has come, and His will is to be done. The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
The mountain of religion is the prayer focus theme for April. The Kingdom of God is over ALL the mountains. We want Kingdom rule in ALL the mountains.
“Now it will come about that In the last days The mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it.” Isaiah 2:2-4
Father, we recognize the day we are in, the day You have designed us for, the day our prayers and petitions are focused on. We want Kingdom rule in ALL the mountains and thereby we declare that the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
“… If… you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29
Thank You, Papa God, that You are eager to be found when we seek You. We choose to seek You, knowing that You are “..not hiding from us, You are hiding for us.”(Bill Johnson) Father, I pray for an encounter with You that initiates a lifestyle of abandoned worship, anointed preaching, and power-filled ministry that only a manifested son or daughter of God can express. We are in need of a holy hunger, a thirst for the divine, and a passion for Your presence.
“…encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.” 1 Thessalonians 2:12
God calls us further up, and further in to His Kingdom glory. As we go up, we manifest His kingdom on the earth. His kingdom is here. His kingdom is near. The old things of our lives have passed away, they have no hold on us. Father God has declared a new thing in us, He makes known His purposes and plans to our hearts and minds. Jesus has made the Way clear, simple, and pure…let us walk in this good and ancient way, so that we may have rest for our souls.
“In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.” 2 Timothy 4:1-2
Thank You, Father, for Your Kingdom to be manifested on the earth. It is already here! Help us to be as patient, as encouraging, as kind to each other as You are to us.
“But about the Son he says, ‘your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.'” Hebrews 1:8
Father God, we declare justice, Your divine justice, to prevail over and on the earth. We cast down all unrighteousness and human agenda from the religion mountain. Let the religion mountain be known as the mountain of “Your kingdom come.”
