Should we pray, “Your Kingdom come…”?

1 Comment


In our Sunday Bible class someone mentioned that they had been told they should not pray, “Thy Kingdom come…” So, we talked about it.

What do you think? Should we pray, “Thy Kingdom come…”?

Some say that the Kingdom offer has expired. It’s over. It’s not here. It will return at some unknown point in the future.

I can think of two reasons that WE SHOULD pray,

“Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…”

BECAUSE

Jesus said,

This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done
   on earth as it is in heaven…”

AND BECAUSE

Heaven knows we need the King’s will on earth

NOW,

not just later.
