January 18 – Day 4: The Lord’s Prayer
Praying God’s Agenda
But seek his Kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. (Luke 12:31)
“…your kingdom come, your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven…”
PRAY HIS AGENDA FIRST
God knows our needs, wants, and desires. What he wants to know more than anything is that we are loyal and true to him. Praying for God’s priorities before our own, or in lieu of our own, helps us shift our heart’s desire to what God’s heart desires.
Here are some of God’s priorities. You can also learn more about his priorities by studying Scripture.
• Offering the gift of salvation to those who don’t yet have it
• Guiding those in authority – parental, spiritual, governmental, workplace
• His will in us
Today, ask God what his agenda is. How can you pray for his agenda to be first in your family? At work or school? In your neighborhood? In your community?
think about it:
How will you make God’s agenda first in your life?
