Praying through Matthew 21:15

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many lessons that I can learn from the Scriptures. Keep me from the sort of religion superiority and spiritual myopia that was demonstrated by the religious leaders whose pride and practice prevented them from seeing Jesus.. May I keep the eyes of my heart on Him every moment of the day and may the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart become perfected praise to the honour of Your name. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Praying through Matthew 21:43

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the lessons You are teaching me through it. Thank You that Your Word is true and that You have not finished with Your people, Israel. Thank You that because of Israel’s unbelief, I have become a citizen of heaven and joint heir with Christ. I pray for the day when Your people cry out in repentance for salvation. I will rejoice with them when the kingdom that was promised to Abraham, Isaac, Israel, and David, is fully and finally realised. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
