What do you pray for?
Does it bring you rest?
“This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” – Matthew 6:9-10
His will be done – are you sure you want that?
What is His will?
He willed people to die to include His Only Son and that was for His enemies! He willed for most of His followers to die horrible deaths in absolute poverty – are you still up for this?
The ones He loved the most were usually the ones with the least earthly stature or prominence – still hanging in there on wanting this?
Am I saying don’t want His will? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Just know this – when you pray this believe that whatever comes your way is a gift from Him and treat it as such and your life will be a life full of simple miracles in each and every moment.
What does that look like? It looks like a moment to moment path of growing Peace for your soul and Love for ALL those around you – Yes even in the midst of being stoned you can see God – just ask Stephen next time you see him.
Find a time and a place where you probably wont be disturbed and just take some time to take a couple of deep breathes and relax. Once you feel a bit more still just close your eyes and over this for a few minutes:
Breathe in and say:
“Your kingdom come”
Breathe out and say:
“Your will be done”
Practice this and the rest in the knowledge that what you asked God to do He is faithful to do if you ask with the right motives. What you asked for here is “Your kingdom come” (Bring your Love through me) and “Your will be done” (Whatever it takes to shine that light through me- Please do it)! Now remember whatever comes your way this day is here to create in you the heart of a Lover like no other – That is what Jesus was and that is what will draw people to Him!
