The Lord’s Prayer: the Second Request

The Lord’s Prayer: the Second Request

Let your kingdom come.
Matthew 6:10

What does this mean?

God’s kingdom comes all by itself without our prayers. However, we pray in this request that his kingdom will come to us.

How is that done?

God’s kingdom comes when our heavenly Father gives us his Holy Spirit. He gives us the Holy Spirit through his words in the Bible. Through his gifts we can believe in God, and can lead a godly life, not only here in the present, but also in the life to come.
