IV. The Third Request

May Your will be accomplished. As it is in Heaven, so may it be on Earth.(Matthew 6:10)

Q. What does this mean?

A. Truly, God’s good and gracious will is accomplished without our prayer. But we pray in this request that is accomplished among us as well.

Q. How does this happen?

A. It happens when God destroys and interferes with every evil will and all evil advice, which will not allow God’s Kingdom to come, such as the Devil’s will, the world’s will and will of our bodily desires. It also happens when God strengthens us by faith and by His Word and keeps us living by them faithfully until the end of our lives. This is His will, good and full of grace.
