You need endurance to do the will of God and receive what he has promised.
Lord Jesus, please give me the strength to endure the sufferings entailed when following the will of the Father, just like what you did. You have shown me that this is the only way to conquer this world, to defeat Satan.
Holding on to what this worldly life offers is the greatest barrier in entering God’s kingdom. The pleasure and pride, the fun, fame and fortune – these are the things Satan brandish in front of our eyes to lure us out of God’s embrace. Help me Jesus not to be blinded by these things that can only last a lifetime. Help me see beyond this life and discover God’s beautiful kingdom, where there is everlasting peace and joy, love and light.
Lord teach me to value my life with humility. Enrich me not with material things but with a steadfast love for God’s will.
