Build Your Kingdom Here

Your kingdom come, your will be done,on earth as it is in heaven. – Matthew 6:10

Jesus spoke these words to teach His disciples how to pray. God invites us to pray for His Kingdom to come, and His will to be done… here, as it is there. In heaven, God is surrounded by praise, angels calling out, “Holy, holy, holy”, constantly.

We long to see that happen, here. May our own hearts cry out to Him, passionately, constantly, ceaselessly, “Holy, holy, holy!”

May His Church be ignited to cry out together, “Holy, holy, holy!” as they are built up together in love into a dwelling place for the Most High God.

May the nations, people from every tribe, and people, and language, cry out to Him, “Holy, holy, holy!”

I love the way this song from Rend Collective captures this passion…

We seek Your kingdom first
We hunger and we thirst
Refuse to waste our lives
For You’re our joy and prize
To see the captive hearts released
The hurt; the sick; the poor at peace
We lay down our lives for Heaven’s cause
We are Your church
We pray revive
This Earth

Build Your kingdom here
Let the darkness fear
Show Your mighty hand
Heal our streets and land
Set Your church on fire
Win this nation back
Change the atmosphere
Build Your kingdom here
We pray

We hope you received our e-mail with the exciting update of how God is moving in bringing us to Papua New Guinea. He has provided several new partners over the last month, and brought us down to only $878/month needed to bring us to 100% of our monthly budget and release us for our assignment!

Join us in praying that His will would be done, here, now. That He would build His kingdom, and use us to do so. If He is leading you to join us, please notify us immediately so can let our our supervisors know that the gap is being closed. Your gift of whatever amount the Lord leads you to give – monthly, quarterly, or annually, will help us meet this goal! You can reach us by e-mail at melissas _ smith @ wycliffe. org (no spaces).
