READ: Micah 6:8
HE HAS SHOWN YOU: We have a God who has an open heart towards us. He does not leave us ignorant of His plans and wishes. Let's begin by praising God for His revelation into our lives.
WHAT IS GOOD: God's plans for us are good. There are many people in the world who do not realise this. Let's pray for people we know who need such a fresh understanding. If appropriate, let's share some names first so that we can pray specifically.
KNOWING WHAT THE LORD REQUIRES: God's expectation on us is not unreasonable. He expects us to come to faith in Him through the Lord Jesus Christ. This opens the way for us to fulfil the three requirements listed by the prophet Micah. Let's focus on this key point of the reality and simplicity of God's plan of salvation and pray that we have a really clear grasp of it.
DOING JUSTLY: Although Micah addresses his comments individually ("O man") he intends them to apply universally - to every individual man and woman. We will take the opportunity to pray for society in general. Let's name some areas in society where injustice needs to be dealt with and then go on and pray about these in particular.
LOVING MERCY: Again we will take the opportunity to pray for society in general. Let's name some areas in society where mercy is a must and pray that those responsible will have a renewed love for it.
WALKING HUMBLY WITH OUR GOD: Once again let's pray for society, that there will be an end to arrogance, but let's pray for ourselves too that we will increasingly fulfil this command.
