“Your Will Be Done”
To pray that God’s will be done—and mean it—is a dangerous thing to do.
How, after all, can we voice that prayer and not remember the Lord Jesus voicing it on the night that he was betrayed and arrested: “Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not my will but your will be done”?
The next day he was crucified.
O God, give us grace and give us courage that we might pray that your will be done—and mean it.
O God, give us grace and give us courage that we might in faith live into your future regardless of how we have to get there.
O God, give us grace and give us courage that we might be willing and active partners with you in the doing of your will.
“Your Will Be Done…” (Matthew 6:10b)
