Praying the Lord’s Prayer

Scriptures : Romans 14:17, 1 Corinthians 4:20

“For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 14:17)

“For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” (1 Corinthians 4:20)

If we want to experience the kingdom of heaven in our lives, then we should always pray the Lord’s prayer. However, when we pray the Lord’s prayer, we should not do it as a quick recitation but as the expression of our heart. We should pause from time to time to feel every word that we say and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the truths hidden in the Lord’s prayer to us.

Our experience of the kingdom of heaven through the Lord’s prayer depends on the revelation we have received from it. In the beginning, we may receive no or just a little revelation when we pray the Lord’s prayer. So, we don’t experience the kingdom of heaven much. But as we keep on praying the Lord’s prayer consistently, we shall begin to receive more revelations from it. As a result, the experience of the kingdom of heaven in our lives will increase.

As believers, we should pray the Lord’s prayer as often as possible, individually and together as a church. As we do that, the kingdom of God will become real inside us and in the midst of us.
