Seek First the Kingdom of God

Father, we pray that we will seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, in order that all these things may be added to us. We pray we will be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, we will let our requests be made known to You. And Your peace, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4: 6,7) (Matthew 6:33)

Father, we pray that we may fear You according to Your Word: for there is no want to us who fear You. The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but we who seek You will not be in want of any good thing. We pray that we honor You with our capital and sufficiency from righteous labors, and with the first fruits of all our income, in order that our storage places may be filled with plenty, and our vats be overflowing with new wine. (Proverbs 3: 9, 10 AMP)

Father, we pray we will bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in Your house. We pray that we will test You now in this matter to see if You will not open for us the windows of heaven, and pour out for us a blessing until there is no more need or room. Then You will rebuke the devourer for us, so that he may not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will our vine in the field cast its fruit. And all will call us blessed, for we shall be a delightful land. (Malachi 3: 10-12 KJV/NAS)

Father, we pray that as we give, it will be given to us; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, it will pour into our laps. For whatever measure we deal out to others, it will be dealt to us in return. (Luke 6:38)

So, Father, we pray we sow bountifully in order to reap bountifully. May we give as we have purposed in our hearts, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for You love a cheerful giver. And You are able to make all grace abound to us, that always having all sufficiency in everything, we may have an abundance for every good deed. As it is written, “He scattered abroad. He gave to the poor, His righteousness abides forever.” Thank You, Father, You Who supply seed to the sower and bread for food, will supply and multiply our seed for sowing and increase the harvest of our righteousness. You will enrich us in everything for all liberality. (2 Corinthians 9: 6-11a)

Thank You, Father that Jesus came that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly. Thank You, Father, for supplying every need of ours according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. For every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from You, Father of lights, with Whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow. (James 1:17) (Philippians 4: 19) (John 10: 10b KJV)

Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, may we let our minds dwell on these things.

We allow you to create in us a clean heart, Holy Father, and to renew in us a steadfast spirit. We ask that the spirit of the Lord rest upon us – the spirit of wisdom and understanding, counsel and might and strength, the spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. We pray that we ever be continually filled with the Holy Spirit and the fruit that the Holy Spirit produces: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

We pray that we walk and live habitually in the Holy Spirit, responsive to, controlled and guided and led by the Holy Spirit, so that we will not gratify or carry out the craving and desires of the flesh, and not be subject to or come under the law.

We pray unceasingly for ourselves and all of our tent that we be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That we walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.

Father of glory, You have given to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in our knowing Jesus. The eyes of our understanding have been enlightened in order that we know the hope of our calling, the riches of the glory of His inheritance in us, and the exceeding greatness of His power toward us His saints – the true believers– according to the working of His mighty power that He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the Heavenly places.

Jesus, our Lord, sits far above all principality and power and might and dominion and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. God, our Father, has put all things under Jesus’ feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to us – the Church – which is His body, the fullness of Jesus who fills all in all. We trust You, Lord, with all our hearts, and we lean not to our own understanding. We acknowledge You in all our ways, and You will direct our paths. We trust in You in order that loving kindness and mercy surround us. We will not trust in man or make flesh our strength – for the joy of the Lord is our strength! We will continue in the Faith firmly established and not be moved from the gospel – the good news!

We will abide vitally united to You so that Your words will remain in and continue to live in our hearts, so that we may ask whatever we will and it shall be done for us. For You have called us and chosen us that we might go and bring forth much fruit, and keep on bearing – birthing and travailing – lasting, remaining, abiding fruit – even into old age, Lord – that You may be honored and glorified – and that we may show and prove ourselves to be true followers and disciples of Yours!
