Prayer Series XXXVII

We continue with excerpts from Reformed Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer.

Matthew 6:5-15, Luke 11:2-4

The Petitions (continued)

Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven

Prayer is a mighty instrument, not for getting man’s will done in heaven, but for getting God’s will done in earth.

Robert Law

The most important part of God’s kingdom lies in His will being done.

John Calvin

We here pray that God’s laws may be obeyed by men as perfectly, readily and unceasingly as they are by angels in heaven.

J.C. Ryle

We ask in faith when we submit to the Word of God and acquiesce in His will . . . For faith submits itself to every word and desire of God.

Jerome Zanchius

Our truest happiness is perfect submission to God’s will, and it is the highest charity to pray that all mankind may know it, obey it, and submit to it.

J.C. Ryle
