Praying from Matthew 4:17 relating to Repentance, Kingdom of Heaven.

Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for beginning your ministry on earth and for preaching the message of repentance. Help us to turn away from our sins and to seek your Kingdom with all our hearts. May we always be mindful that your Kingdom is at hand and may we live our lives in a way that honors you. Guide us in your ways and lead us closer to you each day. In your holy name we pray, Amen.

Verse: From that time, Jesus began to preach, and to say,“Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”
Matthew 4:17

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to repent because the Kingdom of Heaven is near.
