"Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13
"Thy Kingdom come." - We belong to a heavenly kingdom - we are not of this world - clearly as we look around us and hear and see the "doings" of mankind we can heartily pray "Thy kingdom come"!!! But not only do we pray for God's Kingdom to ultimately come to earth - but we pray for God's Kingdom to be set up and established in our hearts here and now! Notice it does not say "my kingdom come" ;-). Prayer is first and foremost about GOD and HIS KINGDOM! Our needs, wants, wishes are not even mentioned until later.
