Our Father in Heaven Hallowed be Your name Your Kingdom come quickly Your will be done the same
On Earth as it is in Heaven Let Heaven come to Earth as it is in Heaven Let Heaven come
Let Heaven come, let Heaven come
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the power Yours is the glory forever, amen Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the power Yours is the glory forever amen
Revelation 21:1-27 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”
Jesus spoke about the the Kingdom of God all the time, but what is it? It is the place where God reigns. It is his way of ruling, where all things obey Him and work for His glory. So when we pray “kingdom come” we are saying “let things be as you want them to be”. No more tears, no more death, no more pain. This is what we are asking for, this is what Jesus came to bring.
HOLY SPIRIT give me opportunities today to bring Your Kingdom here, to see heaven on earth!
