Thursday 6-4-20 prayer

Published June 5, 2020 by Pastor Vicki in Daily Prayer

A Prayer a Day: Good morning, Lord. Today when I woke up I was thinking about my life, and people’s lives in general. Our days are made up of what we think about, talk about, and the actions we take. Since I am a Christian, trying to follow Jesus, I frequently think about Jesus’ life. Jesus’ life is recorded for us in the Bible. Of course, many things that Jesus said and did are not recorded, but the Bible gives us a lot of information about Jesus’ life. I have heard a number of pastors say, Jesus talked more about money than any other subject.That’s not exactly accurate, Jesus talked about money in 11 of his 39 parables, but he talked about food in 18 of the 39 parables.The subject he talked about more than money and food is your Kingdom, God. Jesus’ primary message about the Kingdom of God is that everything else is to be centered around your Kingdom, Holy God. Jesus said your Kingdom is different than the world’s kingdoms; that your Kingdom has a totally different set of rules than worldly kingdoms. The main point of talking about your Kingdom is to encourage us to build your Kingdom, and find a way to live by your Kingdom rules. Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is at hand,” and he can show us how to enter it. Holy God, as we pray your Lord’s Prayer, we say, “Thy Kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Help us to work to bring your Kingdom more fully into existence in the world through our every thought, word, and deed. Come Holy Spirit and make is Kingdom builders: amen.
