Heavenly Father, we read in Your Word that, “where there is no vision the people perish – but blessed is the one that heeds instruction.” Father forgive us for seeking after our own limited, human vision rather that seeking after Your godly and eternal vision.
Forgive us for seeking to place our trust in our own limited view of what we consider is important in our lives and the world in which we live, rather than seeking after the purer perspective of Your eternal plans, for only when we have come to an understanding of Your purposes for the world, can we in honesty and in humility seek for godly wisdom and a godly vision.
Lord we pray, “Thy will be done on earth – Thy kingdom come..” for in so doing we recognise that without the Prince of Peace returning to rule and reign over this world, there will be no rest for humanity and no lasting peace that passes understanding.
Teach us to learn Your vision and to pray into Your will, not only in our personal lives and those of our loved ones, but help us also to come to a deeper knowledge of Your greater vision for the future of mankind, when the earth shall be filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. Help us to soak our hearts in Your perfect desire for mankind, and to understand Your greater purpose for humanity. Give us the wisdom to pray into Your vision, for only as we align our minds to the mind of Christ and our will to the will of the Father, through the power of the Holy Spirit, will we pray effectively.
In Jesus' name,
