Every day when, or even before, we greet the first rays of the morning sun,
we can pray that God’s perfect will, for that particular day, will be done.
“Thy will be done, in earth, as it is in heaven,” Jesus said to pray.
In your own life, that will ensure that you’ll be walking on the right pathway.
“Not My will, but Thine be done,” Jesus prayed—another way of saying,
that you trust the Father’s wisdom in any matter about which you’re praying.
And for your nation’s government, trust this same prayer to have effect,
ultimately, in making the kind of wise decisions that God would select.
Of course, not everything that may follow our prayers can be called God’s will,
for there’s an enemy, in this world, who is out to steal, destroy, and kill.
But that’s exactly why our prayers are needed, because of the spiritual warfare. We’re told that the whole armor of God is the equipment that we’re to wear.
P. A. Oltrogge
“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
…from Ephesians 6
“Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth, as it is in heaven”…Lord, in our lives and in our government. We pray that any legislation, proposed or established, that is not right in Your eyes will come to nought, in Jesus’ Name…Amen
and the entire Lord’s Prayer….
