Hebrews 11:16

​But they were waiting for a better country—a heavenly country. So God is not ashamed to be called their God, because he has prepared a city for them.

​All of us, as followers of Jesus, are here because of the legacy of those who’ve gone before us.  Abraham is one of those.  And this week’s prayers are inspired by his journey as we in turn think about the legacy we’re passing on to the next generation of Jesus followers.  This means we’re compelled to ask the question- what are we passing on?   Are we stewarding the way of Christ well?  Is the way of life we’re handing on defined by the values we see hinted at in Abraham’s story?  


Do we live like this?  


Do we do the Abraham thing and long for the heavenly country?  


Are you proud of us?




We are like Abraham.  Longing for the better place that you promise is coming.  Help us to go the extra step today by making it real in our homes, our relationships, our schools, our workplaces.….because we recognise the heavenly country, the Kingdom you promise, starts here, now, with us. 


So, may we pass on to the next generation a way of life that is defined by living as if the heavenly, better world is already here.
