Build Your Kingdom

photo-24

Lord God, Architect of life, thank You for the gift of knowing You and Your truth. You are the same God of yesterday, today and tomorrow. You are the One who heals us from the oppressions of this world.

Let Your light rise up out of our own darkness to reveal a world where God is intimately involved.   Talk to us.   Restore us. Show us what we need to learn by opening up our minds so that our imaginations can run wild with God’s possibilities. So that no matter what the world throws at us we will never lose our provider, our creator, our healer and our friend.

“This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out. 19 “And that’s not all. You will have complete and free access to God’s kingdom, keys to open any and every door: no more barriers between heaven and earth, earth and heaven.” (Matthew 16: 18-19 The Message)

Through Your Son, Jesus, we can share in Your glory because the grace of God is greater than anything that we have to face.   It is bigger than our future.   And as we stand on the shoulders of those who have paved the way for us to know the gospel, we ask that you continue to build Your kingdom right here, right now, and start with us.

We wait for You

Eternal One, we are here because we need You. We need Your strength and we need Your wisdom to rush into our lives right now. Don’t hold back, because we need You to reignite our faith so that we can get out of our head and get back into living in the here and now.

Etch Your truth into our hearts today so that we can boldly speak the Word of God and not miss out on this life. Give us patience, Lord. Give us the patience to wait for You because “those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall soar on wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and never faint.” (Isaiah 40:31 TVB)

The gospel truth is that Jesus, the cross, and the resurrection all liberate us from a decaying world. And even though we can’t see or hear You, Lord, our faith tells us that You are here. You have always been right here. And even when our own hearts abandon us, You take away our burdens so that we can just lean on You and depend on You. So we wait…we wait through our joys and our sorrows.  We wait through the darkness for the sun to rise.  We wait and we pray for Your miracles to move the mountains and obstacles in our way.  We wait for You.

You make all things new

God shining His light onto our city.

God shining His light onto our city.

Lord of all, thank You for being everything that You say You are. You are the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. The One who is, was and will always be in the presence of the world that You so love.

We step into Your presence today so that You can step into our story and interrupt the chaos of our lives.   Let Your voice speak the truth that we need to hear right now so that when the world throws our mortality in our face, we can be still and know that God is greater than anything that we could possibly imagine.

Transform us. Change us. Humble us. Mend our every flaw so that we can live fully experiencing the miracle of life with each and every breath that You gift to us.  For “if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation. The old has passed away; and, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV)

Lord, let’s try it Your way. Let’s live this life Your way. Let us let go and let God. For Your love never changes, it never falters and it will forever be the constant reminder that we never need to give up because the battle has already been won and we have victory now and forever. Amen.
