 Luther’s Explanation Of The Third Petition

C: Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
P: What does this mean?

C: God’s good and gracious will certainly is done without our prayer, but we pray in this petition that it may be done among us also.
P: How is God’s will done ?

C: God’s will is done when He breaks and defeats every evil plan and purpose of the devil, the world and our sinful flesh, which try to prevent us from keeping God’s Name holy and letting His Kingdom come. And God’s will is done when He strengthens and keeps us firm in His Word and in the faith as long as we live. This is His good and gracious will.

Sing: Thy Kingdom come, Thine let it be  In time and in eternity.
Let Thy good Spirit e’er be nigh  Our hearts with graces to supply,
Break Satan’s pow’r,defeat His rage;Preserve Thy Church from age to age.

Thy gracious will on earth be done  As ’tis in heaven before Thy throne;
Obedience in our pain and woe And patience in all grief  bestow.

Curb flesh and blood and every ill  That sets itself against Thy will.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Christian church, the communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.
