Praying about God’s Name and Kingdom

Praying about God’s Name and Kingdom

Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Matthew 6:9-10 (ESV)

The infinitely glorious God of the universe, through grace, allows us to be His adopted children who may address Him intimately as “Father.” We hallow God’s name when we honor Him as the holy one revealed in the Scriptures. His kingdom comes not only in the future at Christ’s return, but now as God rules over creation, history, and in the hearts of those He redeems.
