Prayer Thought – God’s Will

I was praying through the Model Prayer (Matt 6:9-13) and really reflected on “Your will be done.”  How would my church look, my place of employment look, my marriage look, etc.?  How would my life look like if God’s will were truly reflected?  What kind of changes would take place?  The latter was rather humbling!  It quickly went from “Your will be done” to “forgive me for my sins.”

Let’s face it.  We often seek God about what His will is because we want to accomplish something.  Perhaps a better prayer is to first learn to obey what He has already revealed.  “Lord, please help me obey and walk in Your known will.”
