When we pray for His Kingdom to come, we are asking Him to superimpose the rules, order, and benefits of His world over this one until this one looks like His…God’s word collides with the world of darkness, and His world always wins. Our battle is always a battle for dominion – a conflict of kingdoms.
God has chosen to work through us. We are His delegated authority on planet earth, and prayer is the vehicle that gives occasion for tHis invasion. Those who don’t pray ALLOW DARKNESS to continue ruling. The enemy’s greatest efforts at deceiving the Church are centered on diluting the purpose and effect of prayer.
“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” – Philippians 3:20
Paul spoke, not about going to heaven someday, but about living as citizens of heaven today – specifically from heaven toward earth.
We have the privilege of representing heaven IN THIS WORLD so that we might bring a manifestation of heaven TO THIS WORLD.
QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:
1. What role does prayer play in the war of the worlds (god’s versus darkness)? What has my prayer life done toward this cause? How can I influence others to join their prayers with mine in order to bring victory to this world?
2. What does living as a “citizen of Heaven today” on earth look like? What affect can it have?
