The Prayer of Kings


How many know you're royalty, you're b orn into a royal family? When you and I give our lives to Jesus Christ, God
puts His own spirit and DNA into us. We become changed on the inside through experiencing Christ. We become
royalty, part of a kingly family, and of course we need to keep remembering who we are. That's why he keeps saying
here you are, you are chosen, you're a generation chosen b y God. You're not a nobody, a nothing. No matter what
happened last year, no matter what struggles you had, what pressures, what difficulties, what challenges, today is a
new day for God's chosen people. Today and this year is a year for great things for you. I can tell you for certain as
you start this year, God has great things ahead for you. He has great things ahead for us. Whether they come about,
of course, relies on us making good decisions, and connecting with Him.
I want you to open up your Bible with me in 1 Peter 2, Verse 9. I want to just start here, then we'll go back to where
we were last week. I want to talk about - here it is - The Prayer of Kings. I want to do The Prayer of Kings, I want to
look at particular prayer in the Old Testament, but let's just have a look at see our identity first of all in 1 Peter 2,
Verse 9: But you, you are royal priesthood, chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own special
people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness a nd into His marvellous light. And
now you were once not a people, but now you are the people of God. We are the people of God. We are the people
of God. Notice the key thing I want to bring in here you are the people of God, a royal priesthood.
How many know you're royalty, you're born into a royal family? When you and I give our lives to Jesus Christ, God
puts His own spirit and DNA into us. We become changed on the inside through experiencing Christ. We become
royalty, part of a kingly family, and of course we need to keep remembering who we are. That's why he keeps saying
here you are, you are chosen, you're a generation chosen by God. You're not a nobody, a nothing. No matter what

you start this year, God has great things ahead for you. He has great things ahead for us. Whe ther they come about,
of course, relies on us making good decisions, and connecting with Him.
So you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood. So this year God has things for you to do. He has relationships
for you to build. He has things for you to accomplish. He has giants for you to bring down. This year it's all out there -
God has got many opportunities planned for you for this year and I love that. I love coming into a New Year, and we
need to be continually reminded as we come into a New Year, who you are in Christ. You are a chosen generation,
you are royalty who has access to God - here it is - you are a king, on assignment from heaven, in the earth. I want
us during this year to have our minds set on who we are. You are kings, on assignment from heaven, in the earth.
You are a king on assignment, a role to serve and advance the kingdom of God this year.
So the question is: what will advance this year, because of your efforts, and because of mine? I want you to turn with
me in 1 Chronicles, Chapter 4. Our assignment is to make Jesus Christ known, make Jesus Christ known. You may
think your assignment is to make a lot of money, but the purpose of making a lot of money is to make Christ known,
to make Him known. Let's look in 1 Chronicles, and I want to pick up just two verses we're going to look at, and I want
