Praying for the Kingdom by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/04/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever feel like you just don’t know how to pray? Jesus’ disciples must have felt that way because they asked Him for help. In His model prayer, Jesus first focused on the kingdom of God.

First He said, “Hallowed be Thy Name.” We can pray the same thing.

“Lord, may Your Name be worshiped and honored by people everywhere.”

“Lord, help me to bring honor to Your name today.”

Nancy: Then He said, “Thy Kingdom come.”

“I pray that Your kingdom would come throughout the whole world.”

“I want You and You alone to rule in my heart today.”

Nancy: Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

“You can have Your way in my life, Lord. I want You on the throne.”

“Lord, help me see what You are doing today.”

Nancy: If you’re not in the habit of praying for the Kingdom of Christ to advance, take some time to meditate on the first three petitions in the Lord’s Prayer. Use these ideas to form your own prayer for the Kingdom of God.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month. — Joel 2:23 (NKJV)
