A Powerful Invitation

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

“The Lord’s Prayer.” You’ve probably repeated it many times in your Christian life. Is it possible that the words have become so familiar that you miss the powerful invitation? What invitation is that, you ask? THY KINGDOM COME. 

When you say those words, you are inviting the all-powerful King into your world. It’s humbly bowing before Him with this request, COME MY KING! You’re imploring Him to set up His throne in your land. You’re petitioning Him to be the ruler of your heart. You’re requesting that He be the Lord of your marriage, family and relationships. You’re bowing to His sovereignty over your fears, foibles, and failures. This is a bold invitation for the King of the kingdom to reign over every detail of your life.

You may be asking, who am I to ask such a thing? If you are a Christ follower, you are His child! So ask Him boldly!

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:16
