Praying Your Kingdom Come
Based on Ps 145:1-14
I extol you for you are my God and my King. You sit enthroned above all things and all things were created for Christ, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities (Col 1:15). Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness (Ps 45:6). Let your name be blessed forever and ever. Let our hearts be set on glorifying you every day. Let the meditations of our hearts and the deeds of our hands be praise to your name. Lord, you are great and greatly to be praised. The praises of your people speak of you might acts; the glory of the splendor of your majesty the wondrous works. Let your people remember your faithfulness and your awesome deeds. Praises should be sung about your abundant goodness and your righteousness. All the king’s hearts are like water in your hand (Pro 21:1).
We are but worms in your presence and our greatest deeds is but nothing in the shadow of your great deeds. We come to you knowing you are gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. We come on in the name of Jesus Christ whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord, that he would be highly exalted and bestowed the name that is above every name (Phil 2:9-11). We come only in his righteousness imputed to us for his name sake (2 Cor 5:21). We pray that your kingdom of righteousness would live in our hearts as we hate our sin and seek to be made more into the likeness of your son (1 John 2:1-6). Lord you are good and all that you give is good (Jam 1:17). Your mercies are new everyday (Lam 3:22-23). We give you praise and honor for your kingdom is for those who repent (Matt 3:2, 4:17). The Kingdom of God is for the poor in spirit (Matt 5:3). The kingdom of heaven is for those who are persecuted for righteousness sake (Matt 5:10). The kingdom is open to all (Matt 7:21, 8:11, 21:31, 24:14). The Kingdom of God is for those who seek the will of God (Matt 7:21, 21:31). We pray we might humble ourselves and seek to do your will. For you uphold all who are falling, you raise up all that are bowed down.
We pray that your kingdom would come quickly. We long to see Christ return with the title King of kings and Lord of lords, written on his thigh and robe (Rev 19:16). We shall give thanks to you for all of your works. All the saints throughout all the generations shall bless you. They will speak of the glory of your kingdom. We give you praise for your kingdom is forever and ever. You are the holy one who rules perfectly and righteously. Let your everlasting kingdom come. For yours is the kingdom, the power, and glory, forever and ever. Amen.
