This week we will pray from the inspiration of The Beatitudes recorded in Matthew’s gospel chapter 5:1-12. Each day in your devotional and prayer time, read over this portion of scripture.
Pray for poverty of spirit in you and the church.
Pray for those who are mourning in our world and pray about your personal mourning.
Pray for the meek, the humble, the “least of these.”
Pray for a deep hunger for righteousness in your life and pray for those who seek the same.
Pray for and thank God for the merciful who show mercy to others.
Pray for the pure in heart and the peacemakers, that they would increase in the world and the church.
Pray for those who are faithful and suffer for it and pray for the oppressors of human beings, that they be halted, and justice prevail.
