Unknown to many of us, when we pray what is generally referred to as the Lord’s Prayer, which is better to be described as a model of prayer, what we are doing is a declaration of war – that as things are in Heaven, so they should be right here on earth. That is huge. You are saying that the evil on earth be replaced with the serenity and splendor of heaven, that darkness be replaced with light and so forth. This is profound.
In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
