Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

The Lord’s prayer has truly been helpful to all those who have recited it.Especially ‘your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’ is a real strength for those who literally mean it.

Like many others I have been reciting it everyday and I find it very soothing as it confirms his help in all circumstances.

The Lord’s prayer is a true bond between the father and his obedient children.It’s not just a verbal chat between two persons but rather a surrender to the supreme authority.

It is guided by conditions and the conditions are as follows….

-A person must belong to the Lord, that means our works and actions must be in keeping with the statutes of the Lord.

-The Lord has no problem in helping all those who require it but his competitor the Satan won’t allow a person  to be benefited by the grace of the Lord if he /she belongs to the evil one.

-We are passing through a period when the Satan is in a hurry to harvest the crop that belongs to him lest they repent and become the Lord’s property.

In heaven the Lord’s will is accomplished because there the residents know nothing more than the Lord but here on earth we have so many other evil Gods like …addictions to different evil practices.Watching vulgar movies,lying,gambling,committing adultery ,cheating others slandering and so many other things.   

So long we continue to follow the statutes of the evil one his will not be done in our lives not because the Lord doesn’t want it but because it is a legal deed between the Lord and the Satan.

The Lord has nothing to do with people who are always trying to please the evil one perhaps it’s like mixing water with oil.

I ought to be worthy of fulfilling the Lord’s will in my life by means of repentance and mortifications as I have not been loyal to the Lord.

When the fear of death (thanatophobia)looms over the people of the Indian Subcontinent ,it’s a perfect time to have a proper examination of conscience not just to live but also to be prepared for death.

You will not find an earthly father who would create a major problem to punish his children then how could we say that the pestilence and pandemic is occurring by his will?

Thank you dear Lord for bearing with us sinners and for supporting us with all that we require despite our iniquities.

Thanks a lot ,take care.

  1. There was time when I tried to understand the meaning of the first prayer. I read what you wrote and I understand it better. It’s a very empowering prayer.
    Your posts are always beautiful and inspiring, Francis!
    May God bless you and your family!

  2. Some serious and deep truths, Francis. Yes, I think it is very much like trying to mix oil and water. If we conform to the ways of the world instead of being transformed it’s exactly like the fight between oil and water. Thanks for sharing. 🙏

  3. Francis, I say the Our Father every day too. I follow only God and listen to Him only. I was told many many years ago to turn from man’s ways to only listen to God so that God could mold me in the way I am supposed to be. I haven’t regretted it at all. Today I listen only to God and when my life gets to be difficult, I find myself comforted a lot by saying the Our Father over and over again. God bless you, Francis, for being an example of how mankind lives according to how God intended us to be. xo

  4. Since my early childhood I have been reciting the “Our Father” or the Pater Noster which is what they called it in my school as we first learned it in Latin. I still recite it every night before bedtime…
    Great post Francis, thank you,
    FBC.
