Subject: October 5th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

After this manner therefore pray ye, Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Matthew 6.9, 10.

“After this manner therefore pray ye”—What follows upon these words was never meant to serve as a prayer form or liturgy for us to say but as an example for us to follow. The disciples are to learn to pray after this manner.

Christians today should take up a monumental responsibility: the bringing in of the kingdom upon the earth through prayer. Why is it that Satan still remains on earth today? Because those who belong to Christ have yet to experience the victory of Christ. “Thy kingdom come”—On the one hand, we may say it is already in our midst; on the other, its appearing still awaits the prayers of the believers.
