Prayer Monday: The Prayer Wheel- His Will

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 

~Matthew 6:9-13

hiswill

Last week we talked about how when we start prayer patterned after the Lord’s Prayer we start with praise and the next step is to delve into praying for His Will. We worship Him first because it reminds us of His awesome power and then we ask Him to have His Will done because despite all that we could pray, His Will is always the best possible plan for whatever situation we’re praying for. Whether it’s sickness, financial concerns, relationship problems (including friendships), or anything else- His Will is always for our best outcome.

These truths I hold when I pray for His Will to be done in the situations in my life:

His ways are higher than our ways

He knows when everything will happen

Although I cannot see everything on the path of life, God can

He wants to orchestrate things in our lives to give us the best outcome

If I push too much for my own way, sometimes God will give it to me just because I won’t let up- but that means that I will miss out on His best for my life

And so I pray that His Will is done above my own will. I trust that He knows best. I believe that He is able to orchestrate my life much better than I ever could.

Jesus, 

Thank You for loving us enough to give us what we need and withhold what will hurt us.  Thank You that Your Will is only for our best.  Thank You that there is none like You. You are the one true God!!! I thank and praise You God! Let Your Will be done!!!!

  1. I have prayed too hard in the past for things that i do not think are His will but mine. When i get them immediately I get worried that i might have prayed something on myself that had otherwise blocked His blessing. He knows what is going to happen and He will never hurt us, there is a plan and a reason for everything, great word this morning. Blessings, Shalom,
    Andrew
