Prayers for Illumination on Inheritance

Sermon Illustrations on Inheritance

Holy and gracious God, may your Holy Spirit give us a spirit of wisdom and revelation,  so that, with the eyes of our hearts enlightened, we may know the hope to which Christ has called us, the riches of his glorious inheritance among us, and the greatness of his power for those who believe.   Amen. 

Ask, Seek, Knock

May we ask according to your will,

not according to our desires,

for you will give us what is right for us.

May we seek you as the pearl of great price,

not half-heartedly but with our whole being,

for you are always present, ready to be found.

May we knock on the door of heaven,

not fearfully, but as inheritors of your kingdom,

for your ears are ever open to the cries of your children.
