Lord's Day 49

 

124 Q.    What does the third request mean?

 

       A.    Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven means,

 

Help us and all men

to reject our own wills

and to obey your will without any back talk.

Your will alone is good.1

 

Help everyone carry out the work he is called to2

     as willingly and faithfully as the angels in heaven.3
