Praying the Beatitudes

Matthew 5:1-12 When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up the mountain, sat down, and called His disciples to come close. He then taught them (and us!) the attitudes to aim for, pray for, and keep with confidence in His Name: God bless you who are humble in spirit for the Kingdom of Heaven is yours. God bless you who mourn for God Himself will comfort you. God bless you who are gentle for you will inherit the earth! God bless you who are hungry and thirsty for all that is right for you will be satisfied. God bless you who are merciful. God will show mercy to you. God bless you who have pure hearts and pure motives for you shall see God clearly. God bless you, Peacemakers! You shall be called children of God. God bless you who are persecuted for following God’s will. The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to you. God bless you who are insulted, mistreated, and abused because of your faith in Christ. Rejoice! Be glad! What a huge reward will greet you in Heaven in
