For Yours Is The Kingdom - July 20

In our study of the Lord's Prayer, so far we have come to see God as our Heavenly Father, who is Holy and deserves our worship.  We also recognize that we are part of the Kingdom of God and we choose to do His will and trust Him to take care of us.  We have also looked at  the importance of forgiveness and how God will protect us from temptation if we ask Him and how we can seek help from God to deliver or rescue us from evil.  Today we conclude with giving glory and honor to the One whose name is above all names.  

When we pray, "For Yours is the kingdom, and the power and glory forever," we restate that our Father in Heaven is the ruler of everything.  All power belongs to Him.  He has all power in heaven and earth.  Nothing can come against Him. 

All glory belongs to Him, and Him alone.  He is perfect.  He is who He is.  This is the praise and honor due His name. 

Because God's kingdom is eternal, we will be giving glory and honor to Him forever - both now in this earthly body and throughout all eternity. 

The last line in the prayer is Amen.  This word comes from a Hebrew root meaning of being firm and secure.  When we say Amen at the end of prayer, we are acknowledging that everything about God is true and unshakable.  Amen! 

Scriptures: 

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. (1 Chronicles 29:11) 

 And I heard every creature in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be praise and honor and glory and power forever and ever!” (Revelation 5:13) 

Prayer: 

Our Father in heaven, 
Hallowed be Your name. 
Your kingdom come. 
Your will be done 
On earth as it is in heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our debts, 
As we forgive our debtors. 
And do not lead us into temptation, 
But deliver us from the evil one. 
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
