Bible Verse: Revelation 19:16 (NIV)
“On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.”
Heavenly Father, you are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, the sovereign ruler over all creation. We humbly bow before your majestic throne, acknowledging your authority and lordship over our lives. As we pray, we surrender our wills to your divine plan and purpose. May your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Grant us the wisdom, strength, and grace to live as loyal subjects of your eternal kingdom, faithfully representing your love, mercy, and righteousness in this world. Help us to seek your guidance and follow the example of our Lord Jesus Christ, who taught us to pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” In the name of our Savior and King, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
The title “King of Kings” used in the prayer is based on Revelation 19:16, which describes Jesus with this majestic title. This verse underscores the absolute sovereignty of Jesus Christ over all earthly kings and lords. It reminds us that He is the ultimate authority and ruler over all creation, both in heaven and on earth.
The prayer itself reflects the Christian belief in surrendering to the reign of Christ. It emphasizes the acknowledgment of God’s supreme authority and the submission of our wills to His divine plan. The phrase “May your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” echoes the Lord’s Prayer, a model prayer taught by Jesus in Matthew 6:9-13.
In this prayer, we seek God’s guidance and grace to live in a way that reflects His kingdom values here on earth. We also invoke the name of Jesus Christ as our Savior and King, acknowledging His role as the intermediary between us and the Father. Through this prayer, Christians express their devotion and commitment to serving God as loyal subjects of His eternal kingdom, working to advance His will and bring His love and righteousness to the world.
