How To Pray – Part 3
Jesus said he wants your prayers to build something the world desperately needs, his Kingdom.
In his lesson on prayer, He said, “Pray like this… May your Kingdom come soon.”
The Kingdom of God is God’s rule, and the Good News of Jesus Christ.
To pray, “your kingdom come soon” means to ask God three main things.
First, it means to ask God to make His Kingdom reign in your heart.
God always starts with the heart because it’s where we need the most change. It’s where faith begins, sins are forgiven, and the Holy Spirit lives. Your prayers should align your heart with God’s Kingdom.
Second, it means to ask that the Good News of Jesus be preached and accepted by all.
At the forefront of your prayers should be a desire to see everyone come into a saving relationship with Jesus. Jesus said, the “gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
Third, it means to ask God to overthrow all of Satan’s work. It’s the prayer of a spiritual coup.
2 Corinthians 4:4 says, “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
In your prayers, you should ask that Satan be overthrown and the Kingdom of God be firmly established under Jesus Christ. God is on a mission to do just that!
He said to Jesus, “sit in the place of honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.” (Psalm 110:1)
God will continue to build His Kingdom for all eternity. And on the throne of the Kingdom will be Jesus Christ, our savior. Then, in the end, the angels will cry out, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign forever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15)
