Fix Your Eyes On What Is Eternal
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race.”
We prayed for the church to be fully yielded to His spirit, that they would lay aside every weight and sin at the foot of the cross, to press on toward the upward call of Jesus Christ. There was also a sense that God wanted us to pray for the church to mature, so she would fix her eyes on what is eternal. One person in the group released Hebrews 6:1,
“Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God.”
We also prayed for the church to seek first the Kingdom of God and to put His agenda above the plans of man, as the Lord put Matthew 6:33 upon hearts.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
