Lord’s Day 49
Q. What does the third request mean?
A. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven means,
Help us and all people to reject our own wills and to obey your will
without any back talk. Your will alone is good.
Help us one and all to carry out the work we are called to,
as willingly and faithfully as the angels in heaven.
Q. What does the second request mean?
A. “Your kingdom come” means,
Rule us by your Word and Spirit in such a way
that more and more we submit to you.
Keep your church strong, and add to it.
Destroy the devil’s work; destroy every force which revolts against you
and every conspiracy against your Word.
Do this until your kingdom is so complete and perfect that in it you are all in all.
