“On Earth as It Is in Heaven”
To pray that the Father’s will be done on earth at it is in heaven raises some interesting—and mind-boggling—possibilities.
After all, don’t we assume that the Father’s will is done perfectly in heaven? Don’t we assume that the residents of heaven do what God wants them to do?
So if we dare to pray that the Father’s will be done on earth as it is done in heaven, aren’t we assuming that such doing is actually possible?
O God, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven—and we know that one day, when Jesus returns, it will be.
But God, may it be done a little more each day right here and right now in those of us who follow your Son and who call on your Name and who know your grace.
Please open our minds, hearts, spirits, and bodies to the possibilities for our lives, our worship, our witness, our relationships, and our service.
“On earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10c)
