This is a podcast episode titled, Praying the “Beatitudes” | Prayer on Matthew 5:3-12. The summary for this episode is: When Jesus started to announce the “Good News” of his coming Kingdom, the first word out of his mouth was “Blessed.” The particular word he used was loaded with complexity and meaning that it cannot be captured by that one English word “blessed.” It meant a deep security and happiness and joy and well-being and flourishing. And then he tells us what such a person lives like, and what his coming kingdom will be like. In this podcast episode, let Dave lead you in a time of meditation and prayer through Jesus’s powerful, life-giving words of the beatitudes. Matthew 5:3–12 NIV Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.  Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven Follow Dave Cover on Twitter @davecover.    Like this content?
