Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth, as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10
In His incarnation, Jesus, fully God and fully man, revealed and inaugurated God’s kingdom on the earth within the hearts of people He would call to be His church.
Our prayer for His kingdom to come is a plea for the will of God, the beauty of God, all that is His purpose and desire, to be manifest more fully in us. Both in our own lives and in the lives of our brothers and sisters in His church. Unbound from the fleshly, selfish kingdoms of our own making and surrendered totally and completely to the Kingship of God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
When you pray the Our Father, or, the Lord’s Prayer, make your request for His kingdom intimately personal; that heaven would overtake your own heart and the Holy Spirit would make your life a more accurate reflection of the heavenly reality, where God is on the throne, and it is truly no longer you that lives, but Christ that lives in and through you.
