Prayer: Thy Will Be Done

We continue our series on Prayer by exploring the purpose of prayer. The purpose of prayer is not to bend God to our will, but, as we pray, to align ourselves to His will.

“In Jesus’ name, amen” is the way Christians commonly end prayers. Prayers could begin the same way: “Father, I come into Your presence in Jesus’ name,”  That is, “I am not coming to demand my will, I am coming to ask that which I believe is pleasing to Your Son, my Lord, Jesus Christ. I ask You to honor this prayer as You would honor Your Son’s prayers, as I make this request in His name.” 

We surrender ourselves with humility to our Creator, The God of the Universe, seeking that His will be done. We focus on Jesus.
