Welcome to Seventh-Day Adventist Hachioji Church







「何事につけ、感謝を込めて祈りと願いをささげ、求めているものを神に打ち明けなさい」(新約聖書・フィリピの信徒への手紙 4:6)と聖書に書かれているからです。

English Ver May the Lord’s will be done''''

We pray to God. When I looked back on my prayers, there was a few appreciation and praise, but most of them were "wishes".

For example, "God, please lead my plan to success." "God, please make my wish come true."

They are not wrong prayers. It is written in the Bible as follows.

pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (Philippians 4:6 NLT)

However, the Bible teaches us to ask God's will rather than our wishes. This is a prayer of Jesus before the cross.

“Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” (Luke 22:42 NLT)

One morning I noticed this word when I was reading the Bible.

“Be courageous! Let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. May the LORD’s will be done.” (1Chronicles 19:13 NLT)

This is the word David's servant Joab spoke before the battle.

He should have wanted to win the battle. But he demanded for achieve of God's will, not his own victory.

It reminded me a sentence that I have read before.

"Prayer is the process by which my wish matches God's will by the work of the Holy Spirit."

I hope that my prayers will match God's will.
