Prayer for Matthew 3:2

“and saying, "Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near!"”

Praying through Matthew 3:2

Heavenly Father, thank You for the Gospel of Matthew and the amazing way it gives us an understanding into the life and times of Jesus during His first advent, when He came to 'tabernacle' among His people... and for the ministry and message of John the Baptist who was so faithful to his calling as forerunner and herald to the King of kings and Lord of lords. Thank You that in Your grace You chose to use the Church to forward Your message of salvation to a lost and dying world, and thank You that the day is coming when Christ will return to earth to set up His kingdom of heaven on earth... and Israel will repent and recognise Jesus as their Messiah and King. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
