Jesus began His ministry announcing the Kingdom of God had come to earth. And, he encouraged us to pray to God saying “Your kingdom come, Your will be done.”
In this next set of guided prayer prompts we are going to be praying for God’s might and power to break into specific areas and situations of our lives, and for God’s will to be done.
Use the following prayer prompt to spend a few minutes with your heavenly Father asking for His power to be displayed in your life and your world.
Today, pray for a church leader. Pray for him/her to be a shepherd to those he/she is leading and to serve God willingly and not reluctantly or for self-gain.
Use these words:
Lord God, by the power of Your Holy Spirit and through the authority of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I ask Your Spirit to fill _____________________________ so he/she leads willingly and not grudgingly, not for what he/she will get out of it but because he/she wants to serve You.
If there is a problem, tell your Heavenly Father about it:
Father, this is what it’s like ______________________________.
Now ask God to come with power into the situation and make it right:
Lord, come and _______________ so _________________________.
With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this:
Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. Set the world right. Matthew 6:8-10 MSG
