Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.

The Master’s recipe for Effective Praying is the theme for the next few Sunday’s and is a study of the petitions found in the Lord’s prayer.

Today we are discussing, Thy Will Be Done.

“It is God’s will.”

These words are often used to interpret the tragedies of life.

In legal language, “an act of God” is used to explain the great catastrophes that bring so much suffering and ruin.

Yet Jesus instructed us to pray, “Thy will be done.”

Does that mean that we are praying for catastrophes and tragedies to fall upon us?

Such tragic events are not what we find associated with God’s will in the Bible.

God wills to create a world, to create humans, to send His Son, to redeem humans.

These things are an expression of God’s eternal purpose and will be accomplished, so there is really no need for us to pray for the accomplishment of them.

But God’s will also includes His commands and His plan for our day to day lives.

Thus we need to pray that His will might be done in our lives and in the lives of others.

The concern of this particular petition is how we are to do God’s will.

Since His will is to be done “on earth as it is in heaven,” we are to look to heaven for our pattern of response.

Even though we do not know as much about heaven as we would like to know, we do know enough to give us some helpful instructions at this point.

Stay in the Blessings

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.

When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at The Refinery.

When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.

So whatever you’re concerned about and need prayer for we want to be here for you! Or even if you just want to say Hi, you can contact us at
