“For thine is the kingdom . . . ” – For Young Children

“For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.”

Jesus taught that God was all-powerful. That means that God is stronger than any one or any thing. He can do anything He wants to do, and no one can stop Him. That is real power! God
rules the world, and His light shines everywhere. This powerful light is the “glory” of God, that will always be here with us, forever and ever. Nothing can hide the light and power of
God. We end our daily prayer with a reminder of these truths about our Father-Mother God. Thanks to the Lord’s Prayer that Jesus gave us, we know more about God. When we pray,
we become aware of God’s kingdom, and power, and glory. We let God’s light shine through us, so others will see God’s Love in action. See how brightly you can shine right now!

“For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.”

Because God is everywhere, or infinite, “there is no spot where God is not!” God is
all-powerful. He does not share His power with the devil, or evil. Because God is all Life,
none of His ideas, including you, can ever really stop living this Life. Because God is all
Truth, there can never be any lies or mistakes that can hide Truth. Because God is all Love, there is no power in hate. There is nothing that hate can do to harm us. We can be brave in the face of sin, sickness, death, error, and hate. God is with us to keep us safe and happy, no matter what the human picture seems to be. We thank God for all that He is. God is forever All, and all is forever in God, good.
