Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 NKJV
Yesterday we looked at Jesus as began His model prayer while He was teaching His disciples how to pray. In this verse, He prayed, “Your will be done.” This is a biggie when you pray. There are countless people who believe that God does not answer prayer. But effective prayer has to align to the will of God. Parents give their children gifts based on what they believe is in the best interest of the child based on his age and ability. Now if the child asks for a gift that the parents determine falls with those parameters then they will give it to that child. It’s the same way with God.
Now how do you determine the will of God? In Psalm 40:8 David said, “I delight to do Your will, O my God, And Your law is within my heart.” David understood that there is a connection between God’s will and His word. So when you pray, you pray that God’s will be done here on the earth as His will is done in heaven. Sometimes, people pray for things outside of God’s will. So if you want God to answer your pray, change the way you pray. I John 5:14 says, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”
Thought for Today: God answers pray that are aligned to His will.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
