Prayer: Heaven and Earth

Passage: Matthew 6:10

Speaker: Brian Land

Series: The Art of Prayer

Keywords: heaven, kingdom, will, earth

When we pray "Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven" - we are admitting that creation ("earth") is utterly broken while holding out hope that God has, is and ultimately will restore all of creation, including me, back to it's original glory.

Matt 6
5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts.
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
