Pray that the saints would hunger and thirst for righteousness, be willing to be persecuted for it, live it out by taking Christ as their life according to the new law of life, and seek it along with God’s kingdom in the reality of the church life today (Matt. 5:6 and 61, 10 and 101, 20 and 201; 6:33 and 331).

Matt. 5:6—Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Matt. 5:10Blessed are those who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens.

Matt. 5:20—For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens.

Matt. 6:33—But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
