PRAYER: Working with God to Usher in His Kingdom!

‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and He will dwell with them!’

Thank you, Lord, that your heart is to make all things new, and that you are doing this now through us, your sons and daughters, disciples of Jesus.
Help us to play our full part in making everything new!
Thank you that you are moving in every sphere of life and throughout the globe.
We long to see you making every aspect of our world new.
Show your power in every corner of our lives – use us to release your presence and power and bring:
– healing and restoration of health to those we encounter, those who are near to us, and those you place on our hearts
– integrity of leadership and life to invade every area of life where we are present or have influence
– your presence and life into our education system, that your pathway and values would once again be the plumbline
– honesty and Christ-like motives into business and industry, that all would have the opportunity to flourish.
May we increasingly sense where you are moving and work with you.
May we point others to you in all we are, say and do.

‘Not to us, Lord, not to us, but to your glory – because of your love and faithfulness to us.’
