“Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
Father, our tendency is to try to take control. Help us to see that you rule over everything so much better than we do. You rule our own lives better than we do. So, we want your kingdom to come, not ours.
Keep us humble and dependent on you. When we were saved into your family and brought into a relationship with you, we were told we had to lay down our own plan for our lives. Now we pray, Lord, that your will, your plan, would be done! Carry out your perfect will!
We pray that heaven would come down to earth. Heaven is that realm where you are seated on the throne ruling and reigning in perfect grace and glory. Oh God show us what it would look like for heaven to come into our lives, our families, our communities just as it is in heaven! That is what we want!
