Unlimited: Pray Like You Mean It

Your kingdom come your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10, NIV).

Many people get down on their knees and say: “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be your name: your kingdom come…” (Matthew 6:9) and then they go out and do something to prevent that kingdom from coming…

When you say this in your pew on Sunday it means nothing unless you live it on Monday… I don’t care how loud your wind-jamming in prayer meeting may be if you go out and skin somebody in a horse deal the next day…

Those who truly pray “Thy kingdom come,” will not be shrinking their measures at the store; the load of coal they send out won’t be half slate. The person who truly prays “Thy kingdom come” won’t undercut you for a metre of cloth. It will not take the pure-food law to keep a man who truly prays “Thy kingdom come” from putting chalk in the flour, sand in the sugar, brick dust in red pepper, ground peanut shells in breakfast food…

For those who truly pray “Thy kingdom come,” it would be impossible to have one kind of religion on their knees and another when behind the counter… When a person truly prays “Thy kingdom come,” it covers everything in a person’s life, or nothing at all.

– Billy Sunday (adapted)

Eli’s Reflection: Take some time and think about what “Your kingdom come” means for you? How willing are you to fully surrender to the kingdom of God in your life?  Find a beautiful place outside and ask God to show you how he wants to manifest his kingdom in your life. Spend some time truly praying the prayer, “Your kingdom come.”
