A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

The kingdom of God came into the entire world through the Son of God; are you still a citizen of an earthly kingdom, or a servant of the King of kings?

Are you bearing the fruits of citizens of God’s kingdom?

Is seeking to enter the kingdom of God and His righteousness the priority of your life?

DAY # 290

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD TO COME

Mark 1:15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
Psalms 45:6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
Psalms 103:19 The LORD has established His throne in heaven, And His kingdom rules over all.
Psalms 145:11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, And talk of Your power,
Psalms 145:13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Mark 12:28-34 Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, "Which is the first commandment of all?" 29 Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. 30 ‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 "And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these." 32 So the scribe said to Him, "Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He. 33 "And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." 34 Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." But after that no one dared question Him.
