Jesus taught us to pray from a posture of, Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done [Matthew 6:10]. With that mindset, we don’t shy away from praying and bringing our whole heart before God. But we also maintain humility through trusting and declaring that we accept and believe that God’s will is the best plan for our lives. We surrender our agenda and submit to Him because we believe His plan is perfectly loving and righteous.
With our hearts open and our minds focused, we can unashamedly ask for His kingdom to come. We can petition for Him to move and act and bring change to the world around us, while in the same breath we simultaneously choose to trust His perfect will to be done. For as long as we have breath, there is more work to be done in this life for the glory of God, and our prayers are a powerful weapon to bring such change. We can pray God’s glory and restoration will come powerfully through the Church, and that His perfect love and peace would prevail on earth, just as it already does in heaven.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, our prayers can impact individuals, communities, and even the nations. Take time to pray today for something or someone that has been consistently on your heart and mind. Pray with an expectation of God’s will, as it is in Heaven, to be done here on earth, invading the very petition you’ve brought before Him.
“Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned;”
Colossians 4:2-3 NASB1995
