Your Kingdom Come- Matthew 6:10 “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
This model of prayer taught by Jesus to the disciples demonstrates a prayer of authority.
As Gatekeepers and Intercessors we need to pray like Jesus so we become more effective in our intercession. According to this scripture we see that Heaven is the template for whatever we need to bring to the earth, and when we pray according to His will then we are guaranteed answers to our prayers.
It is the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom- Luke 12:31-32 “Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you. “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
He is commanding us to call for God’s kingdom to rule on earth, in our lives, churches and our cities/nations. The Son of God wants us to pray and to bring Heaven to earth!
To pray successfully on any particular issue we need to find out the heart of the father (God) through the study of His word and listening to Him. When you discover God’s heart on that particular issue, then you make a proclamation about His kingdom to be established on the earth as it is in heaven.
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” This is the authority bestowed on us by Jesus. The question I want to pose to you today is how often do we as believers use this freely given authority? Which brings me back again to the issue of our identity. Knowing our identity in Christ is so crucial to the lives of believers and especially gatekeepers and intercessors. We must know who we are in Christ, taking hold of our inheritance and ruling as Kings, and not living as servants as many do.
