The Reign of God - the rulership of God - that God would be in charge

  1. That I am no longer in charge
    • Prayer is not a way of ensuring MY will but of getting out of the way of Gods will
    • Letting go of control - submission
      • Jesus in the garden "not my will but yours"
    • Receiving what God has
      • What are you up to - agreeing with that will - Hebrews 11
  2. That the enemy is not in charge
    • A declaration of wresting all power away from the enemy
    • Col 2:14by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15He disarmed the rulers and authoritiesb and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him
  3. The system of this world is no longer in charge
    • 1 John 5:4 4For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
  4. Jesus is in charge - 
    • In the Matthew Version of this prayer it says
      Your Kingdom Come - Your Will Be Done - As in Heaven So On Earth
    • Bringing Heaven’s Order to Earth’s Chaos
    • As we pray we are saying - God we agree with YOU over (whatever you are praying for)
      • Praise - we should always begin by agreeing with God about who He is
      • Repent - turn from your way - realize that you are most of the problem
      • Ask - lay out your needs - problems etc
      • Yield - Ask him what his plan is Agree with Him and cooperate with his plan
