Taught to pray

But when the seventh angel blows his trumpet, then God will accomplish his secret plan, as he announced to his servants, the prophets. – Revelation 10:7 GNT

What is the God’s secret plan?

1 Corinthians 15:24 GNT: “Then the end will come; Christ will overcome all spiritual rulers, authorities, and powers, and will hand over the Kingdom to God the Father.”

Matthew 6:10 GNT: “may your Kingdom come; may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I think that I could play a part in God accomplishing His secret plan by praying like this – pray that His kingdom come and His will be done. Amen.

Take as an illustration of questions that are constantly coming up, the matter of theater going, dancing and the use of tobacco. Many who are indulging in these things will ask you triumphantly if you speak against them, “Does the Bible say, ’Thou shalt not go to the theater’?” “Does the Bible say,‘Thou shalt not dance’?” “Does the Bible say,‘Thou shalt not smoke’?” That is not the question. The question is, Is our heavenly Father well pleased when He sees one of His children in the theater, at the dance, or smoking? That is a question for each to decide for himself, prayerfully, seeking light from the Holy Spirit. “Where is the harm in these things?” many ask. It is aside from our purpose to go into the general question, but beyond a doubt there is this great harm in many a case; they rob our prayers of power. – R.A. Torrey
