Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done

. . .On Earth as in Heaven. . .


All of God’s children want to live their lives according to God’s will. What would our churches, our homes, our communities, our nations, even our world look like if we allowed God’s will to be first in our lives? If we even asked God to guide us through any activity or project?

Our churches would be full. They wouldn’t have any budget issues. Our homes would be peaceful and pleasant. The divorce rate wouldn’t exist. Our communities would be safer places to live. The crime rate would drop to zero. People wouldn’t be afraid to get out at night. Our nations would enjoy a peace unknown to present-day countries.

In order for these lofty desires to come to reality, God’s people have to truly seek His rule in their lives. We have to submit ourselves to God and let Him guide and direct us through the events of our lives.

  1. Hi Quiet Spirit -

    I see in this passage a command to pray that God's will would be done on earth as it is in heaven. This means it is possible God's will might not occur if we neglect prayer.

    We are in a spiritual battlefield and meet with resistance at every turn. It's time we cooperate with God in every aspect of our lives.

    Blessings,
    Susan
