Jesus instructs us to pray for people and pray patiently. "Thy will be done," is a way to show Jesus you trust in Him as you pray. Through Jesus Christ your prayers reach the ears of the Heavenly Father and God's will is done as God marvelously orchestrates our lives within His Kingdom purpose. Jesus dearly loves your prayers; He takes thought for you.
The Psalmist prays: But may all who seek You rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the Lord!” As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God. Psalm 40:16-17
When the Psalmist prays 'do not delay, O my God' the meaning is to evoke within us anticipation of prayer answered. We look for God to move out, to transform by the power of the Holy Spirit, and to give blessings and miracles in response. Your prayers are lifted up before the Holy Throne. Rejoice as 'Great Is The Lord' harmonizes with others prayers before Christ. He answers prayers.
To God be the Glory
