What is your vision for the world? Jesus clearly expressed His vision as He taught His disciples to pray: that God’s kingdom would come to characterize the world He created. He calls us to continue to pray that God’s “will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Is this your vision, too? How can you be part of bringing God’s kingdom to life in your spheres of influence today?
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. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’” — Matthew 6:9-13
At King’s Grant, we are experiencing several events to help bring God’s kingdom on earth: Winter Shelter January 23-30, Ken’s January Bible Study on Desiring More (our journey toward personal holiness), the Pursue series (the intensity of our faith), Wednesday Life Groups this next semester (starting back January 30) and Billie Todd will be leading a Wednesday evening class on prayer beginning January 30 at 6:00. All this is designed to develop community, faith, and love.
Continue to pray for God’s will to be done in your life and in the life of the church.
