"Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." NIV
"Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven." KJV
When we pray, do we pray for God's will in our situations, or do we pray for what we want and hope God's will aligns with it? Asking for God's will may mean no healing, no job, or not what we really wanted. Why? Because God's ways are still a mystery to us. He will be glorified in all our circumstances, good or bad. When we pray for God's will to be done, we will also be praying for grace to accept whatever His will is.
Heavenly Father, we stand in great need of Your grace to even be able to pray that Your will be done, because we fear that it will not be what we wanted it to be. Forgive us, Lord, and give us grace to pray boldly with confidence and faith that Your will is the best way. In Jesus' name, Amen.
