Have you ever considered what is commonly called the Lord’s Prayer? In the Good News recorded by Matthew, Jesus says this is how we should pray:

Our Father 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 forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.*


The manifestation of the kingdom and praying for and living with total trust in our Father’s will are interconnected; they go together. Now we could debate what the Kingdom is and what God’s will is but if Jesus’ life and teaching are our guide then at it’s heart we know that the kingdom is selfless, other centered, love and God’s will is that the kingdom would be our way of life with him and with all people.

Would you consider letting your life moving to the heartbeat of the Kingdom?
