When I Pray, I’m committing myself to his will

In summary of Matthew 6:10 it says, “May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”

Bottom line:
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

What this means to me:
Jesus is saying that when I pray, I should commit myself to God’s will.  After I give God my love, I give Him my life.  God has a specific will for my life.  When I connect with God in my quiet time, part of it is asking and committing to what His will is for me today. True success in my life will be knowing what the will of God is and getting right into the center of it.   My attitude should be one of “your will be done, because I know it is the best for me” and this is what I want for my life.  I should be careful to not commit in resentment, I’ll do it, but I won’t like it or I’ll do it because I can’t help or do anything about it. I need to remember that my Heavenly Father knows best.  In summary, I’ll check in with God and ask/commit to “Anything you want to do in my life today, anything you want to tell me." I’m willing to do it.
