Song: King Of My Heart/John Mark & Sarah McMillan
Scripture: Matthew 22: 37-40 (NIV)
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Prayer: Jesus, you tell us this is the greatest commandment, and we want to honor God with all that we are! In fact, when we honor God, our lives are in order. So, Jesus, we thank you for showing us God, our Father, and bringing us near to Him. We thank you that when we honor God first, then our family and country, we are honoring and obeying you. Help us show love and care to our neighbors, for this also shows reverence to you. Lord, help us to shine your love light on others and show them compassion leaving the judgment to you. It’s in the loving Name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Decree out loud: I decree I will love the Lord my God with all my passion, prayers, and intelligence. I declare believers are becoming more passionate for Jesus, keeping their flame burning brighter for Him! I declare He is putting His words and thoughts in our hearts and mouths as we draw near to Him!
Prophetic encouragement: Followers of Christ are rediscovering these scriptures as the most important, next to John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The Lord will comfort America again and bring pity upon the ruin of her society. Joy and gladness will be found here, along with sounds of thanksgiving filling the air! (Isa. 51:3)
