Dear Members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
In the Lord's prayer we say: "Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth." (Luke 11:2-4).
In this prayer we pray for God's Kingdom to come down and His will to be done here on earth as it is done in heaven. Jesus brings down the Kingdom of God to earth. The kingdom that Jesus brings is the kingdom of love, peace, and unity.
Through his ministry Jesus fights against the enemies of peace such as ignorance, poverty, and disease. Matthew 4:23 says: 23 "Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people."
May God help us to establish the kingdom of God here on earth by preaching the good news of deliverance from ignorance, poverty, and disease in the name of Jesus.
May God bless you with your families and friends and protect you in the name of Jesus.
