Matthew 6:10 “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

The word Kingdom refers to the territory subject to the rule of a king. So what would it look like for our community to be subject to the rule of God? First, consider God’s kingdom is characterized by His power and authority. Read through the Gospels and take note of the many times and ways our Lord demonstrated His authority over demons, sickness and sin. Also consider Romans 14:17 where it states “the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

As we pray for the kingdom of God to come and for His will to be done, we pray for God to rule the heart of every family member, coworker, neighbor and friend; we pray for the Church to demonstrate spiritual authority over sickness and demonic powers. I can imagine such a community because our Lord told us to pray for it.
