Lord, reading Your Word says the Kingdom of God is both like a mustard seed that when planted grows, and like a little yeast that then makes a whole loaf. Thinking of the prayer "Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in heaven..." speaks to my heart. If only one of us could usher in but a little of Your Kingdom here on earth (and I'm sure many do), You could then cause Your Kingdom to grow. Lord, cause Your Kingdom to grow through us! Help us to bring Your Kingdom and will to the earth.
Where there appears to be no "fruit" in the lives of professed believers, I pray intercessors stand in the gap for them, and like the gardener, provide attention and special "fertilizer" to their lives. I pray those strong in their faith, grounded in who they are in You, will rise up and help those struggling to enter the narrow gate, before the gate becomes impassible. I pray there would be an encourager, edifier, helper and comforter. Above all I pray we be love, leaving aside all judgments, relying on Your Holy Spirit to animate our words and actions. In Jesus Name, amen.
