Good, great, and merciful heavenly Father in Messiah Jesus, give me the right longings, desires, hungers, and thrusts. I long just for personal peace and prosperity all to often, but I need to have a passion for YOUR WORD and the restoring of the kingdom of life and light over the darkness. Lord, help me to seek first YOUR kingdom and righteousness more than anything else. Put in me YOUR longings that I might be controlled by YOUR passion. Amen
3rd Reading: What is God's personal invitation for you from the Scripture? You can write down what God may be saying to you or a prayer of thanks. Or rest quietly in God.
Rejoice in my revelation of salvation.
