Ask God to equip and guide us to do his will on earth.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
- Matthew 6:10 from full reading Matthew 6:5-15.
Did you learn the Lord’s Prayer by heart as a child? It’s easy to fall into saying the words by habit, forgetting their true meaning. When we pray ‘Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven’ do we resign ourselves, even when praying for the world God wants to come into being? Or do we offer ourselves in obedience and ask God to equip and guide us to do his will on Earth?
Something to pray
Instil in our shaken souls
the belief and hope that all things
are possible with your creative love
for strangers to become friends
for science to source solutions
for resources to be generously shared
so everyone, everywhere, may have what they need
for your perfect love that knows no borders
may cast out any fear and selfishness that divides.
