Day 17 - May 23 2012

 

Day 17 - May 23, 2012

As a model of prayer The Lord’s Prayer is perfect.  First we come to God recognizing that He is indeed Holy. Then we ask that His Kingdom come and His will be done.  In other words, more than anything we are asking that His kingdom be done in us also.  Finally, we ask for our daily bread, forgiveness and deliverance from evil.

It’s the Thy Kingdom Come part that has always fascinated me.  For years I thought that I should ask God to do what I want waiting for his Yes, No, and Later answer.  It wasn’t until I thoroughly saw this model of prayer that I realized that my prayers are nothing compared to His will.  That’s why I am so grateful that the Holy Spirit takes my prayers and intercedes for me at the throne of God. 

Blessings,

Pastor David
