Thy Will Be Done:

The Lord’s Prayer is so deep that it has the formula and the secrets on how to conduct our lives. After all, it was taught to us by the Lord Himself.

Books can be written on each phrase of this deep prayer. This is not an exaggeration. When we say Thy will be done, we learn the simple truth that God’s will is the best way for us to lead our lives. You may say how do I know God’s will?

If we depend on our will and wits and live according to the world standards, we often choose the wrong paths which often cost us. When we face situations where we are unclear about God’s will, we must seek it by prayer and spending time with the lord.

Dear friends, let us be practical and realistic. Who knows better about everything, us or God? God knows everything about everything. In addition, He loves us. After all, He is our Heavenly Father. He knows what is best for us. Therefore, willingly submit your will to God’s will. Give Him all your thoughts. Ask Him to bless your actions and plans and then, proceed according to His will.

The results are nothing short of a miraculous, influential life. The result is a better you. A more sanctified you. A happier, spiritually rich you. Thy will be done. When you pray the Lord’s Prayer, say it from the depth of your heart. Mean it. Live by it. May God bless you.


Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
