The Lord’s Prayer (4) ... In earth As It Is In Heaven

When we pray, ‘Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven’, we are saying, we want to see righteousness prevail in our land and in our lives. We want to see people having peace with God as we join hands with God and witness to them. We also want those who know Him (including ourselves) to have the peace of God that transcends all understanding.
In this prayer we acknowledge that we are human and are often driven by our natural inclinations and limitations, and so we pray that it should not be what we will but His will be done here and in my life as He desires It is God who enables us both to will and to do according to His good pleasure. We may plan but God disposes. Whilst we should work, we need to be surrendered to his perfect will as ordained in heaven.
We also want to be obedient to Him as would be expected in heaven. Those who chose to disobey Him had to be cast out of the first heaven and lost their first estate. We want the same for other people.

We are saying, ‘That I may have the grace to obey you, follow hard after You; doing what is pleasing to You; that I may not be displeased with what You are doing or doing what will displease you; that I will follow You whole-heartedly like Joshua and Caleb.
‘Having known that Your kingdom in heaven is of power, peace, joy, righteousness love goodness etc, we want it on earth-in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones, in our offices, in our homes, in our schools, in our government etc. etc, we want a piece of heaven on earth.
