            b. Entrance into God’s kingdom comes by way of promise—grace.

        3. What does it mean to pray, “Your kingdom come?”

            a. To pray, “Your Kingdom come” is to confess one’s spiritual inability and complete dependence upon            

                the Father.

            b. To pray, “Your kingdom come,” is to pray a gospel-mission prayer.

            c. To pray, “Your kingdom come,” is to pray for the consummation of the Father’s kingdom.
