‘I Feel the Presence of The Lord’  

"I Feel The Presence of The Lord" is a personal collection of devotions intended to encourage the reader to seek and see the Lord in every aspect of their life.
The enemy of our souls would have us subscribe to the mentality of being endlessly busy, and therefore it being excusable to relegate God to a Sunday morning church service, if that. Thus, many in our churches today are powerless Christians and/or Christians in whom faith and fellowship with God is sorely wanting.
I Feel The Presence of The Lord is not just a book to be read as part of our daily devotions. It is a collection of thoughts and instructions to inspire the reader to meditate upon the Lord and His Word.

The Second Petition of The Lord’s Prayer – Sunday Thought For The Day

The Lord’s Prayer is comprised of seven petitions. There are three “thy-petitions:” thy name, thy kingdom, thy will; followed by four “us-petitions:” give us, forgive us, lead us not and deliver us. In today’s Sunday Thought, we’re focusing on the second petition.

The second petition is: “Thy kingdom come.” In the Greek New Testament the word for kingdom is: basileia, which means kingdom, sovereignty, royal power.  It’s used to convey kingship, sovereignty, authority, rule, especially of God, both in the world, and in the hearts of men.

You’ve no doubt prayed this petition a countless number of times.  When we pray it, we’re asking God to establish His kingdom of sovereignty and royal power in earth as men turn their hearts living holy and obedient lives.

When we pray this petition we’re interceding for the salvation of the lost and also for holiness and obedience to Christ’s commandments.   It’s a prayer that God will have preeminence in the hearts of men; that His laws will be obeyed; and especially that the gospel of Christ may be advanced everywhere, until the world is filled with his glory.

The important thing for us to remember is, that this prayer is sufficient for this period now, when we are under grace.  There’s a future day/period coming, when we will no longer have need to pray this prayer.  That will be the day of Christ’s return and the New Jerusalem.  It will be the day that there’s no more sin, pain or wickedness.  It will be the day we worship God and our Savior, when the enemy of our souls and his progeny are cast into the lake of fire.


Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
