God's Will

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. Imagine the beauty of this world if God’s will reigned on earth. 

But it doesn’t. We live in a fallen world where sin and disobedience seem to increase daily. Even though Satan rules this world, believers in Christ Jesus have access to the power of God that enables them to fulfill His will in any situation. So how do believers begin to bear witness to the contentment of obeying Heavenly Father’s will?

Start by praying. Prayer opens the lines of communication with God. A deeper relationship with Him grows from a daily habit of prayer  With humble hearts and open ears, listen for God to speak through His Word and use His Word to communicate with Him. Soon His decrees will become part of your life, and hopefully spread like wildfire throughout your family, church, community, and eventually the world. 

Maybe you’re unsure what to say in prayer to God. If so, you are in good company. Jesus’ disciples knew He corresponded with His Heavenly Father through daily prayer. One time after He finished praying, the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray (Luke 11). Jesus’ answered, “When you pray, say … and right away He began to pray.

The prayer Jesus prayed was simple yet complete. It’s a model prayer, not only for the disciples, but for all people for all time. In sincerity with humility, let’s us pray together The Lord’s Prayer.

‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
‘Give us this day our daily bread.
‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]  Matthew 6:9-13 (NASB)

‘Our Father who is in heaven,

Heavenly Father, who created heaven and earth, You are Father to us all, loving us more than we can even imagine. Thank you. 

Hallowed be Your name.

You are a holy God. Your name is holy. You are worthy to be worshiped and adored, revered and honored.

‘Your kingdom come.

Only Your kingdom, Lord God, can bring true peace to this world. May we share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with our neighbors, friend, and even enemies. 

Your will be done,

Jesus, You humbly submitted Yourself to the will of Your Heavenly Father, and You desire that we follow Your example of true humility. 

On earth as it is in heaven.

May Your will be lived out on this earth though us Your followers until You come again to bring everlasting peace.

‘Give us this day our daily bread.

You daily supply our needs. May we daily trust You through Your holy Word with offerings of praise and thanksgiving.

‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

Lord God, if You forgive us like we forgive others, would we be forgiven? Jesus, help us to offer to others Your merciful grace and forgiveness, and then graciously receive Your forgiveness.

‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

As we seek to draw closer to You, Mighty God, deliver us from the temptations and evil of the devil. 

[For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]

May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven, O God, and to You be all the glory. 

And all the people shall say, “AMEN” (let it be so)!
