The Blessed Life: Blessed Are the Persecuted ~ Matthew 5:10-12

Almighty Blessed God, You are our eternal God who is, was and always will be.   You are our worthy aim and glory.  You are more valuable than all the treasures and happiness this world can promise.  Lord, we confess our love for this world, its comforts, its pleasures, its offers are far too often ours.  Lord, we feel pull and influence of call of all that is around us.  Lord, help us.  We can’t stand like the saints of old, with rejoicing and hope and resolve apart from your gracious, steadfast love keeping us and preserving us.  Lord, grant us faith that we might live for righteousness sake.  Turn all our longings and desires toward your kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Reveal our indifference and even hostility toward your kingdom when it clashes with our kingdom and give us repentance that we might receive the great reward in heaven, the eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look to Christ the founder and perfecter of our faith with great joy and gladness.  Amen & Amen.
