Give us this day our daily bread
Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven
and try to pray God's will,
or do you pray your own will?
“I am the vine, ye are the branches.
He that abideth in me,
and I in him,
the same bringeth forth much fruit”
What did he have to do first?
Why do you think the prophet
made him wash in that dirty river?
Have you ever wanted something or asked God for something and it didn't happen all at once?
Do you think God has something better?
Ask you parents or grandparents if they have ever had to wait for an answer to prayer.
Did God have something better in mind?
Sometimes we have to yield to God before we can receive the greater blessing that He has for us.
What if you asked your mom if you could go outside to play,
but she said you have to clean your room first?
She loves you and wants you to have fun and enjoy the beauty outside.
But, we have other things that are good for us,
that help us to learn and grow and be responsible.
Chores and schoolwork are also good for us.
So, you asked, and she responded.
Now, what should you do?
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you,
ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness,
and all these things shall be added unto you.
Here's the song:
When our eyes are fixed on Jesus,
when we seek first His Kingdom,
He takes care of the rest!
Practice yielding to your parents and others
in charge of you.
Then yielding to God will be easier!
And, when you pray, ask and then say something like:
God, you know what is best. Your Kingdom come
on earth as it is in heaven.
