Praying from Matthew 5:20 relating to Righteousness, Kingdom of Heaven, Pharisees
Dear Lord, I pray that you help me to exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees. May my actions and thoughts be pleasing to you and may I always strive to do what is right in your eyes. Please guide me on the path towards your Kingdom and help me to live a life that is worthy of your love and grace. Amen.
