Lord's Day 48


123 Q.    What does the second request mean?


       A.    Thy kingdom come means,


Rule us by your Word and Spirit in such a way

     that more and more we submit to you.1


Keep your church strong, and add to it.2


Destroy the devil's work;

destroy every force which revolts against you

and every conspiracy against your Word.3


Do this until your kingdom is so complete and perfect

that in it you are

all in all.4
