Praying from 1 Peter 4:17 relating to Judgment, Obedience, Good News.
Dear God, we acknowledge that the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God. We pray that you would help us to be obedient to your Good News and to live according to your will. We ask for your mercy and grace as we seek to follow you and to be faithful to your calling. We pray for those who do not yet know you, that they would come to a saving knowledge of your love and grace. May your Holy Spirit guide us and empower us to be your witnesses in the world, sharing the Good News of your salvation with all who will listen. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

1 Peter 4:17
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to obey the Good News of God, as judgment will begin with the household of God and those who do not obey will face consequences.
