My Prayer for World Missions
Pray for God's Kingdom to continue to expand, for His will to be done here on earth as it is in heaven. That His name would be hallowed (sanctified, feared, honored) in all the earth. For God's Kingdom to be further established, the religions of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Animism to fall. Millions of people are blinded to the truth because of these four religions. We must pray that the people under them will be set free and worship will be restored to the King of kings and the Lord of lords in the hearts of all peoples.
God's Kindom is His reign and rule, Jesus said, for indeed, the kingdom of God is within you. Ask God to reign and rule in every area of your life so that His name may be hallowed in you. The essence of the Kingdom is the presence of the King. Matthew 6:5-13, Luke 17:21
"Your will be done" Jesus taught us to pray for God's will to be done. God expresses His will through His commandments to His children; we express our love through our obedience to His commandments. Pray that the next heartbeat of believers today would be a heartbeat of obedience. God has commanded us to love Him and to love one another, He has also commanded us to go to all nations and make disciples. Pray that God's children would rise up in obedience like Abraham who was willing to give up his only son to obey God. And God promised him that all nations of the earth will be blessed, all because you have obeyed me. (Gen. 22:18) Our obedience is the nations' salvation; ask God how you can be obedient to His commandments and by doing so you will show your love for Him. May you pray daily...Here I am Lord, send me, wherever you lead I'll go. (John 14:15, Matthew 28:18-20)
Pray for the Church to be filled with the passion of Jesus Christ who gave His life for her. Christ's passion was for the will of His Father, for God's glory, for the salvation of man, and for the destruction of evil. Christ's passion led him to leave His home in heaven, to dwell among men, to tell them the truth of God, and do whatever it takes to see God's will done on earth just as it is in heaven, even to die. Ask God to give you and the Church the willingness to say; not my will, but yours be done. Ask God to give you the passion of Jesus Christ, a passion for God's glory, a passion to see the nations receive salvation, and a passion to see evil destroyed here on earth. In a world of passions, we must have one ultimate passion - a passion for Jesus Christ. (Luke 22:42, Heb. 12:2-4)
Kingdom. Obedience. Passion.
Is it in you?
