Join us in prayer for God’s Kingdom to come and rule over the hearts of all, in particular the area of religion.
“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.
“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.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
Father God, when we seek You, Your kingdom comes to us, comes to earth. There is no better way to get Your Kingdom than by seeking You. “All these things” are gravy compared to You. Open the eyes, ears, and mouths of our brethren to the wisdom and splendor of the King of kings and His ever-present might and unequaled justice. Father, mobilize the “Yes” men, women, and children and release them into the world, declaring and preaching the good news of the kingdom of God.
“The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.’” Revelation 11:15
The kingdom, Your kingdom, has come, is coming, and will come and we declare our agreement with You. Align us, Father, with Your plans and purposes for ourselves, our families, and our churches. Teach us to walk in the full reign of Jesus the Christ, on earth as it is in heaven. Open our eyes to the armies of God arrayed around us and open our mouths to proclaim the good news to the poor!
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Father, we need Your assistance and guidance to bring us to the place of humility, we need to pray what You long for us to pray so that You can act on a prayer worthy of Jesus’s personhood. Open our eyes, great Physician; unstop our ears, Holy One; loose our tongues, Great Spirit; so that we may declare Your plans and purposes upon the earth.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:16-17
Father, encounter us once again. Invade Your church and reveal Your desire for us. Make known Your passion for relationship with us.
“Then Yeshua said to His disciples, ‘If anyone wants to follow after Me, he must deny Himself, take up his cross, and follow Me.'” Matthew 16:24
Jesus, we set aside our selfish ambitions, our misconceptions of Your goodness, and our idol worship of our weakness. We choose You, once again, we pursue our First Love.
“’But let one who boasts boast in this; that he understands and knows Me. For I am Adonai who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth. For in these things I delight.’ It is a declaration of Adonai.” Jeremiah 9:24
Father, just when we think we know You, Jesus steps into the light and we are undone. Shape us and mold us to be vessels of Your lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
“But then Moses said to Him, ‘If Your presence does not go with me, don’t let us go up from here! For how would it be known that I or Your people have found favor in Your sight? Isn’t it because You go with us, that distinguishes us from all the people on the face of the earth?’” Exodus 33:15-16
Father, we must be filled with Your Spirit again, and again, and again…It is Your presence that draws all men, women, and children to You. Your grace and love is what we long for, what we need, what we are requesting from You right now. Make Your Name famous through us!
