I'm a little slow, sometimes a lot slow but after reading the Lord's prayer hundreds and thousands of times something just hit me. Our Messiah is telling us to pray that the Almighty's kingdom and His will, come to this earth as it is in heaven. How awesome is that?

Yes awesome . This is what a comment in my Bible says about that. After the rebellion of Satan the earth fell into his usurping hand. Thus, the will of God could not be done on earth as in heaven. Hence God created man with the intention of recovering the earth for Himself. After the fall of man, Christ came to bring the heavenly rule to earth so that the earth could be recovered for God's interest, so that the will of God could be done on earth as in heaven. This is why the new King established the kingdom of the heavens with His followers. The kingdom people must pray for this until the earth is fully recovered for God's will in the coming kingdom age. This prayer, as a pattern, cares first for God's name, God's kingdom, and God's will, and second, for our needs.
