Day 6: Repent

Today’s Scripture:

Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,
Acts 3:19

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Matthew 4:17

Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.
Proverbs 28:13

Prayer + Reflection

  1. For God’s Kingdom to come into our lives, we must repent from building our own kingdoms. Today ask God for forgiveness for any selfish actions in the past.
  2. God’s Word calls us to repent from depending on our own strength in order to gain His wisdom. Confess the ways you have relied on your self instead of Him.
  3. God will calls us to surrender through repentance. Surrender your own visions of the kingdom for His holy sight. 

Family Moment

Parents, pray this over your children today;

“Father, if there is any sin in my child(ren), hidden or apparent, I pray you would gently convict them of it. Allow them an appropriate sorrow over any sin, then give them the courage and ability to repent of it. Increase their desire to love You and serve You. Grow in their hearts, that they will be quick to walk in Your ways. Nurture in them as great faith, and mark them as a child after Your own heart. In Jesus name, amen!”
