Why is there such resistance to praying Matthew 6:9-13?
I suppose because Jesus asked us to.
Many claim Jesus’ Kingdom is already come. Has it? Are you face to face with Jesus or the Devil? You can claim Jesus’ Kingdom came when he died and was resurrected or you can claim Jesus’ Kingdom came on the Day of Pentecost, but the truth is that it will not come to fruition until immediately after Judgment Day, after the last foe which is death is defeated.
The Lord’s Prayer refers to the Father’s Kingdom which technically isn’t different than Jesus’ Kingdom. Has Jesus received his bride, has the wheat been separated from the chaff?
Thus I pray … thy kingdom come thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven…, and I encourage you to do the same. Matthew 6:9-13.
May it be prayed more often as the public prayer in churches rather than men finding their own words!
