A Daily Prayer based on Matthew 6:19-34 for 8/15/2018

Heavenly Father, I bring ______________________ and myself before your throne this day. I ask you to do a powerful, transforming work in us by your Holy Spirit. I pray that we will store up for ourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Your Son taught us that where our treasure is, there our hearts will be also. May our truest treasure be in heaven that our hearts may be there too. Remind us that no one can serve two masters, that we cannot serve both you and Mammon. I pray that we will love you and be devoted to you, and come to hate and despise the idolatry of materialism. May our eyes be good, focused on you and not on things, so that our whole body will be full of light instead of darkness. I pray that we will not worry about our life, what we will eat or drink, or worry about our body, what we will wear. Gently remind us that life is more important than food, and the body more important than clothes. Remind us that we are much more valuable than the birds of the air, which you feed even though they do not sow or reap or store away in barns. Show us the futility of worry by reminding us that worry cannot add a single hour to life. You clothe the lilies of the field, which are here today and tomorrow are thrown into the fire, with such beauty that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of them, even though they do not labor or spin. So I pray that we will not worry about clothes, but grow in our faith that you will much more clothe us than the grass of the field. And so I pray that we will not worry about food or drink or clothing. May we not run after these things, understanding that you know our needs and will provide for us. I pray that we will seek first, above all other things, your kingdom and your righteousness. I ask you to give us all these other things as well. May we not worry about tomorrow, but allow tomorrow to worry about itself. I pray that we will trust you one day at a time, knowing that each day has enough trouble of its own. Please supply all our needs according to your glorious riches in Christ Jesus. In his name I ask these things, amen.

Welcome

Never before in the history of our country has America faced a moral crisis like the one before us today. The foundations of our government are crumbling right before our eyes. Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ.
