A Short Prayer for a Long-Lasting Legacy

Our gracious God and Father, we want to leave a lasting legacy. We want to invest our lives in a way that will make a difference. Father, we ask you to not allow us to cling to what is comfortable. Keep us from shrinking back from the challenges and opportunities you have placed before us. We want to let go of all that will hold us back.

Oh, Father, would you lead us, would you use us to make an impact for the kingdom, for your glory and for the good of many, many people. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
