My Monday Prayer: Three Child-Like
Heart Attitudes of Kingdom Greatness

Three Child-Like Heart Attitudes of Kingdom Greatness
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. Matthew 18:4 NLT
Humility: Humility is a disposition that says, “There is no greatness in me.” Little children are not concerned about their status, title, or how much they know. As kingdom people our prayer should be, “Lord, help me to be less so You can be more.”
Dependency: Little children are dependent upon another to provide for them, guide them, protect them, and care for them. As kingdom people we are as dependent upon the Lord as a branch is upon the vine.
Trust: Little children live in simplicity. Life isn’t complicated. They don’t live under a cloud of doubt. As kingdom people we live by faith, and our trust is fully in the Lord.
My Monday Prayer
Lord God, when You called me Your child, You were also stating that You are my Father. Thank You. Thank You for taking me under Your wing, for teaching me Your ways, for providing for me and protecting me.
Teach me how to be Your child again—to have humility, to need to depend on You, and to trust You with every detail of my life and those lives around me. I want to have that child-like faith that is described in Matthew 18. I want to set aside my will to better live out Your will for my life. Help me Lord. In Jesus' name, amen.
