Prayer is to ask for that which only God can do

Your kingdom come, your will be done, today on earth as it is in heaven…

We ask this bcos we believe that God has all authority, and all power to undertake and do, concerning all things that pertain to our lives. It’s very basic, but prayer is to ask for that which we can’t do. It’s to ask for that which only God can do, asking Him to do it.

Your will be done, today...

You believe that God is the Sovereign God, who is over all, who has the power to work ALL things according to His will and purpose. There is not one thing, which pertains to us living in this present world, that is not subject to Him. We believe this, so that’s why we pray in faith. We are co-workers with God, ruling and reigning with Him. This is a life of prayer and obedience.

Therefore, a great renewal of the mind, daily, is needed, for we naturally tend to think in terms of what WE can do and achieve, according to our natural abilities. Ever-increasing faith.

    Ruling and reigning with Christ is Christianity 101, and nothing to do with the modern dominion movement. If Jesus is not ruling in a person’s life, then who is? It would be a tragedy for a Christian not to rule and reign with Christ, now, in this life.

    Yes, we should be co-workers with God, it means to cooperate with God:

    2Co 6:1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that you receive not the grace of God in vain.

    We have been given a free will to choose to cooperate with God or not. Many choose not to. They say, If God wants to do anything He will just do it. He doesnt need me to do it. True, He doesn’t need us to do anything, but He has ordained it to be that way.

    When God is working in and thru a person they are a co-worker. If we labor in prayer, we are simply cooperating with His work in us and thru us, and in preaching and everything, if we are truly led by the Holy Spirit. It is an immense priviledge.

    Sadly, too few know this in their experience: they consider that what they do and what God does, as two separate things. Of course, He does infinitely MORE than what He does thru us, yet He has recruited us as His Ambassadors, as His mouth pieces.

    The person who walks in the Spirit, obeying Jesus, is ruling and reigning with Him. It means that every good thing in their life is by the authority of Jesus. They are no longer ruled by the devil, or by sin, or by the world, or by their flesh.

    We stand by faith. In Jesus name means in His authority. So, the person who is not ruling and reigning with Christ is a carnal person, or immature. Their life is not an expression of the authority of Jesus name. When we meet a Godly person we are seeing spiritual authority manifested in their life, and we give the glory to Jesus, knowing that it is Christ in them.

    However, ruling and reigning with Christ does not mean to rule and reign in this present world system.

    Gal 6:14 But God forbid that I should glory, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

    Here is another aspect of ruling and reigning with Christ:

    Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
    1Co 6:2 Do you not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
    1Co 6:3 Know you not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
    1Co 6:4 If then you have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

    This is an example corporately, yet individually we have many judgments of things pertaining to this life.

    Spiritual judgment is an expression of the rule of Christ. Rule and authority are synonyms.

    In the millennium we will rule and reign with Christ over the nations.

    Now, prior to Jesus return, there is a spirtual rule, for us, pertaining to the things of this life, as Paul puts it.

    On ruling:

    Proverbs 25:28 He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

    James 3:2 For in many things we all offend. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
