During the Season of Easter, NMO-UMC is focusing on The Lord’s Prayer. We will explore each petition and its meaning in the Bible, what we ask of God and what we ask of ourselves through its words, and how to use it as a pattern for our own prayer life.
When we pray “Thine,” not mine, we commit to use the power and influence we have for God’s good purposes. Our message, For Thine Is the Kingdom, Power, & Glory, will come from Revelation 7:9-12.
Revelation 7:9-12 (NRSV)
9After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. 10They cried out in a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12singing, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
