This third petition “Thy will be done, on earth as it in heaven” is where we reverently fall before our LORD with a lifestyle of obedience and reverence for HIM! This reverent yielding acknowledges our Heavenly Father, as holy, as honored and as worthy of our obedience and reverence! This means we surrender ourselves to our Sovereign Father! PRAYER bears fruit when we get beyond ourselves! Getting past ourselves, getting over/beyond our meism and individualism is a tough battle, a lifelong fight! WHY? It’s ongoing… it’s a struggle… a clash of wills! KEY: The human will cannot overthrow itself! SURRENDER is initiated and energized by God’s Spirit. The Holy Spirit provides the enablement; Jesus provides the example!!! Jesus taught His disciples to yield themselves to HIS WILL in everything! Our bent is to be NUMBER ONE… At the front of the line. If we are going to pray as Jesus taught us to pray we must surrender TO HIM and TO HIS WILL FOR OUR LIVES!
