My Prayer: Thy Kingdom Come


Each time we pray “Thy Kingdom Come” our heart’s cry is that God’s perfect will pervade this earth as He rules and reigns from Jerusalem for only then will the world know peace, only then will all the suffering cease. I do pray for all who suffer for their faith, persecuted and martyred, and for we yet here engaged in a spiritual battle that can make life trying. But, oh, how it does drive us to our knees in humble adoration and praise to our Sovereign Lord. Diaso family, may God bless you!

Our Life On The Border

The Lord’s Prayer

I grew up praying the “Our Father” or “The Lord’s Prayer”. The repetition caused the words to lose some of their significance.

In the last few years I’ve been struck by the wisdom and power found in this prayer that Jesus modeled for us. Of the many wonderful petitions and phrases in the Lord’s prayer, I’ve been especially drawn to the beginning of the prayer. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

I love to think of God’s kingdom expanding on the earth as the gospel is proclaimed. Dawn and I pray that this will be true of the border.

Lately we have also been praying through our present trial.
