And he said to them, “When you pray, say: “Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Luke 11:2 ESV
On mornings when I struggle to know what to pray I go back to the beginning of this prayer. Because we ate still unpacking from our recent move it is easy to think our “Real life” will begin once the final box is emptied. But just as Jesus taught us to pray for daily bread He also has a daily will. Waiting for when the boxes get unpacked, the graduation ceremony or the new job misses the point that today matters most to God.
We feel overwhelmed with the things right in front of us today. But if Pastor Rick Warren or some famous TV show host, called and asked to do an interview we would find time. God is on the line right now calling us to open our m tumultuous day to Him. Because how we praise, have patience or think of the people around us matters to Him. His kingdom coming this morning means our King wants to come and help us unpack every box today for His glory!
