Heavenly Father, thank You that Your loving gaze is always upon us while You bring about Your eternal plans and purposes. Help me to keep my gaze continually fixed on You for Your ways are higher than our ways, and they are just and perfect. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
– Patricia Lake | Seeds of the Kingdom

Father, I long not to be controlled by my emotions but to recognize and understand them. Teach me this art.
Jesus lived so well. Now that he lives in me, grant that I shall live well also. In His name I pray. Amen

Lord, I am sorry if I have become stuck in a routine in my walk with You, without expectation of anything more. Please open my eyes today, so that I may see new and wonderful things about You, and will come to know You better. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Jilly Lyon Taylor Seeds of the Kingdom

Loving God.
You have kept our nation from being overwhelmed from the terror of the virus during the lockdown.  Our hearts are filled with gratitude and praise because of your protection goodness upon us and because of your goodness, we have the freedom to move openly once again. Help us as we reconnect back into society to recover and rebuild. Guard our hearts and minds.  Encourage anyone feeling anxious, afraid, or helpless. Continue to heal those who are sick and protect those who are not.  Restore communities for the glory of your name, and rescue people from depression and loneliness. Strengthen and encourage our church as we work together with one another. Strengthen our bonds and open our hearts to your Spirit’s leading.  Continue to transform us.  Let the spiritual renewal we’ve experienced strengthen our resolve to share your hope.  We believe we will see your goodness in our lives. Calm our fears as we trust in You and come and do what only you can do.
In Jesus name, Amen.

Numbers 6:24-26
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
Lord, bless our families and children. Give them hearts that follow after you.

Father, thank You that Your heart is a heart of mercy. You are the Father whom Jesus described in the Parable of the Prodigal Son. I pray for anyone reading this Seed today who feels a long way from You for any reason. Thank You that You are near and not distant from them. Please help them to come in honesty and confession before You to receive Your forgiveness and grace. Please help them to trust You as You restore their life. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.

Father in heaven, Thank You that we can cling to You and that You and Your kingdom will never be shaken. Help me to have an increasingly deeper trust in You and may many unbelievers be drawn to You in these times of uncertainty.
Peter Brokaar Seeds of the Kingdom

Father God, We Need Your Peace, Today Father God we come to you. We are in need of your peace to come and settle our hearts and spirits right now. When we find that our mind cannot find rest when our needs and worries overwhelm us. When we feel anxious for what tomorrow may look like. Help us to know the truth that you are the peace we need. That we can call on you for the peace that passes all understanding. That we lay down the worries, the concerns, and the cares. Today we cloak ourselves with your peace. We ask that you would bring comfort. May our fears be washed away by the waterfall of your perfect love. Thank you that we do not face tomorrow on our own. Thank you that you are greater than all that we would face and that we do not face it alone. May we take Courage from you. Let faith arise.

Words of Repentance:
O Lord you have examined my heart and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. Psalm 139: 1-2
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
Renew a loyal spirit within me.
Do not banish me from your presence,
And don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. Psalm 51: 10-11
