When You Pray, Give God Your Life

May your Kingdom come; may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 (TEV)

"Did you know God has a specific will for your life? The Bible says in Romans 12 that His will is good and perfect and it fits you."

We worship God when we give him our lives every time we pray. Jesus says when we pray, we should commit ourselves to GoAd's will. After I give God my love, I give Him my life.

Notice the prayer says, "Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." Did you know God has a specific will for your life? The Bible says in Romans 12 that His will is good and perfect and it fits you. Part of connecting with God is saying, "God, what is your will for me today? I want to do your will."

In heaven, God's will is done perfectly. The problem on earth is God's will is not always done. That's why we're to pray, "Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." We're saying, "God, I want to submit to You. I want to do what You want me to do." True success in life is knowing the will of God and getting right in the center of it.

You can pray "Your will be done" in three different ways. You can say it in resentment: "Your will be done, but I don't like it." You can say it in resignation: "Your will be done, because I can't help it." Or you can say it in anticipation: "Your will be done, because I know it is the best and that's what I want for my life today!"

When I was a kid, we watched a popular TV show entitled, "Father Knows Best." Your earthly father may not always know what's best, but your Heavenly Father does. That's what it means to say, "Your will be done."

Pray: "God, I know your will for my life is better than anything I can dream up. I want to give You my life. I want Your will done in my life."
