…For Thine is the Kingdom!

The Lord’s Prayer concludes with a doxology – a final expression of praise and submission – as if to say, “Whatever, God. You’re in control!”  After all we pray for ourselves, all we request, in the end it’s all about Him.

This world is His kingdom Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.  – 1 Chronicles 29:11

He is the ultimate power in the universeWe give Thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, who art, and wast, and art to come, because Thou hast taken to Thee Thy great power, and hast reigned. – Revelation 11:17

And His awesome glory was revealed in Jesus Christ, who lives forever And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only Begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.  – John 1:14

The great “I Am” is the only One worthy of our prayers and the only One from whom we can expect an answer.  AMEN!
