"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
—Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
- Pray for a right focus in America—back to God and away from material things.
- Pray for the church to be the hands and feet of Christ as we minister to those in need, both spiritually and materially.
- Pray for a spirit of seeking God first to pervade the church in America.
Lord Jesus, I commit myself this day to seeking Your Kingdom and Your righteousness. With all that is in me, I long to experience Your rule over my life. May that same desire permeate the church in America. Give us seeking hearts that will not be content with anything less than You and Your Kingdom in our lives. With that firmly in place, help us to trust You to provide for us in every way. Help our nation to be set free from a grasping materialism that is never satisfied and never secure. May our national motto: "In God we trust" become a way of life for America.
