主祷文(二) [Model Prayer (2)]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音6章10节:“愿袮的国降临。愿袮的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。”

今日默想:今天上帝的旨意在天上通行无阻,但在地上却常被人意阻挡,所以需要我们的祷告来为上帝铺路。上帝的旨意像江河一样,但我们的祷告却像细小的管子。因此,上帝的旨意常受祂子民祷告的限制。今天许多信徒的祷告,是站在自己的地位上,为着自己而祷告。很少人是站在上帝这一边,为着上帝的国和祂的旨意祷告。信徒最高的祷告,乃是与上帝同工的祷告,就是专一为着高举上帝名,带进上帝的国,并成就上帝旨而有的祷告。如果上帝的国自己会降临,主耶稣基督就不需要教我们这样祷告。主祷文不仅是一个榜样,更启示了上帝的心意,表明上帝愿意与人同工。只有当人藉祷告与上帝同工的时候,才能带进上帝的国,成就上帝的旨意。上帝作工的原则乃是:祂有一个心意,先让属祂的人知道,要他们为这个心意向祂祷告,然后祂就答应他们的祷告,成就祂自己的心意。真实有效的祷告,必须先认识上帝的心意,使祷告者的心意与上帝的心意合一,才能牵动上帝大能的手,成就所祷告的事项。明日将继续“主祷文(三)”。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 6:10 :“Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

Today’s Meditation: God’s will has no boundary in heaven, but has many obstructions on earth. Thus, we need to pray in order to lay path for God. The will of God is like river but our prayers are like tiny hose. Therefore, His will is often obstructed by our prayers. Many Christians today pray on their standing ground. Very little people stand on the side of God and pray for His kingdom and His will. The highest level of prayer is the prayer of working together with God. Such prayer exalts the name of God, brings in the kingdom of God and fulfil His will. If the kingdom of God will come easily, Lord Jesus Christ would not teach us to pray like this. Model prayer is not just a model prayer, but also to reveal the mind of God to work together with us. We can bring in the kingdom of God and fulfil His will only when we work together with God through prayers. The principle of God is that: He has a will and He let His people to know His will, He then asks them to pray for the will and He will fulfil their prayers and consequently fulfil His own will. A truly effective prayer comes from understanding the mind of God. This will gather together the mind of praying individuals and the mind of God. Through this, we can move the hand of God to fulfil our prayers. We will continue ‘Model Prayer (3)‘ tomorrow.
