The church, prayer, and the will of God. Part I
The church must understand and believe that the will of God is to be known, proved, and obeyed. You, as a member of the church (aka body of Christ), must believe the same. Although many think they can never clearly know the will of God, this is not true. Essentially, prayer is intended for the purpose of knowing God’s will.
The church’s responsibility is to know the will of God and pray through its accomplishment here in the earth. It is the duty of the church to accomplish the will of God on earth. If the church is not able to understand God’s will, His power will be limited. Your prayer life as a member of the body is essential to accomplishing the greater work God desires to do on the earth. The church must reflect God’s glory on a more global and consistent basis. This can only happen as we heed the call to prayer that precipitates knowing and obeying His will.
Let us pray that we, the church, come to know the will of God and declare it in the earth. To God be the Glory!
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
