“Thy Kingdom Come”—​A Prayer Repeated by Millions of People

“Thy Kingdom Come”—​A Prayer Repeated by Millions of People

Have you ever prayed for God’s Kingdom to come? Over the centuries, millions have repeated the words “Thy kingdom come.” Why have they prayed that way? Because Jesus told his followers to pray for God’s Kingdom.

At first, Jesus’ followers did not understand everything he said about the Kingdom. They once asked him: “Lord, are you restoring the kingdom to Israel at this time?” They were probably surprised when Jesus did not give them a direct answer. (Acts 1:6, 7) Does that mean we cannot find out what God’s Kingdom is and when it will come? Not at all!

This issue of The Watchtower will help you find answers to the following questions:

  • Why do we need God’s Kingdom?

  • Who is the King of God’s Kingdom?

  • When will God’s Kingdom rule the earth?

  • What will God’s Kingdom accomplish?

  • Why choose to support God’s Kingdom now?

  • What is God’s Kingdom?
