    This is a DIR.

    People pray for it all over the world......"thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven"

    What are they praying for? How does the Kingdom "come" and how is God's will "done on earth as it is in heaven"?

    What Will God’s Kingdom Accomplish?

    God’s Kingdom will replace all human governments and rule over the entire earth. (Daniel 2:44; Revelation 16:14) Once that happens, God’s Kingdom will . . .

    • Remove the wicked, whose selfishness harms us all. “As regards the wicked, they will be cut off from the very earth.”—Proverbs 2:22.

    • End all wars. “[God] is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth.”—Psalm 46:9.

    • Bring prosperity and security to the earth. “Everyone will live in peace among their own vineyards and fig trees, and no one will make them afraid.”—Micah 4:4, Good News Translation.

    • Make the earth into a paradise. “Thirsty deserts will be glad; barren lands will celebrate and blossom with flowers.”—Isaiah 35:1, Contemporary English Version.

    • Provide everyone with meaningful, enjoyable work. “The work of their own hands [God’s] chosen ones will use to the full. They will not toil for nothing.”—Isaiah 65:21-23.

    • Eliminate disease. “No resident will say: ‘I am sick.’”—Isaiah 33:24.

    • Set us free from the aging process. “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.”—Job 33:25.

    • Bring the dead back to life. “All those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out.”—John 5:28, 29.
    All of those things resonate with hearts that are inclined towards God. We need this government....free from the corruption of men.
