40 Days of Prayer to Change America

I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. —John 17:4-6

I do not think Jesus Christ enjoys anything more than revealing to others the infinite splendor and awesome beauty of His Father. Every aspect of His ministry reflects the indescribable loveliness of the Father. We sometimes talk about the ministry of Jesus only in terms of physical and emotional healing or the preaching of forgiveness. But the ministry of Jesus was not confined just to miracles and forgiveness. The ministry of Jesus was most significantly defined by His making known the splendor of His Father.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, the wonder of Your splendor and beauty is too much for me to comprehend. Make my life a reflection of Your beauty, and show me how to reveal Your glory to those around me.

When it was all over, Jesus summed up His entire
earthly ministry by saying to His Father,
"I've made Your name known to them."
