Your Kingdom Come
Wes McAdams   -  

In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus taught his disciples to pray, “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” In other words, we ought to pray for God’s name to be revered on the earth, his rule and reign to be established on the earth, and his will to be done on the earth. In the opening lines of John 17, those are exactly the sorts of things for which Jesus prayed. Do these themes permeate our prayers? (Scripture: John 17:1-5)
