Let us humble ourselves and turn to Christ.
“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.
“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.
“You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:10
Jesus, You have made us a Kingdom to serve You, the King of kings. We are a royal priesthood, moving in Your Presence with the authority granted by Jesus Christ and caretakers of Your Presence in us and each other. Thank You for shedding Your blood for us. We adore You and exalt Your Name. You are worthy to be praised. You made a way for us.
“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 to 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.
“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. Reintroduce to us our first Love.
