We do not pray amiss when we pray, “Thy will be done”. Thy will be done should be our only request.
God has a plan; His perfect plan. When we acknowledge “His will” will be done, we acknowledge He is the almighty. Our heart falls to it’s knees in reverence and awe. When we pray “Thy will be done”! we are asking that “His will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven”.
Matthew 6:10 NASB “Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven”
A conversation with God, through His High Priest Jesus, need not have requests, need not be amiss. When you converse with someone are you always asking them to give you something? If that is the only way you talk to them, then you become that needy friend.
“You have not because you ask not?” We only need that, “Thy will, Thy plan be done“. Your prayer is immediately, already answered because His perfect plan, His will is done. He is the sovereign, Almighty.
James 4:3 NASB
“You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.”
• He promised you will have your daily need (not wants). He has answered your “give us our daily bread”. What is your daily bread? All you need is Him. He is the bread of life.
Psalm 23:1 NLT “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.”
• He promised healing, here and now or, in Heaven, does not matter. As a Christian you are already healed. People came or were brought to Jesus to be healed. All scriptures on healing refer to spiritual healing. Salvation is healing. Healing physically on earth may happen if it is our Lord’s perfect plan. Healing in Heaven is guaranteed and already answered. God is concerned with our spiritual healing. All verses on healing are a testament to Jesus’ salvation of our spiritual life.
Our only concern is spiritual healing; Salvation through Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. These physical, temporal shells are insignificant in the light of eternity. Physical healing on earth was never guaranteed. We live in a fallen world. But, God. That says it all. He is still on His throne and still in control. God allowed *satan dominion (domain, as in he is running around everywhere) over the earth , not control. We need only know, God is in control and His will be done.
James 5:15 “and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.”
“Thy will be done”. He has already answered. He is waiting for you to acknowledge His omnipotence and He is omnipresent. His will; His plan. Then as you pray (converse with God through Jesus), you will not pray amiss.
In the light of eternity, temporal circumstances are a blink of an eye. His will be done, is eternal.
