Let us go to God…

Thomas Manton on Matthew 6:13…

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

…if we would have any blessings to be accomplished for ourselves, or for the public, let us go to God; ‘Thine is the kingdom.’ And more especially, if we would have any good thing to be done by those in authority and subordinate power over us, do not so much treat with them as with God. Let us beseech God to persuade and incline their hearts, for his is the kingdom: he can move them to do what shall be for the glory of his name, and the comfort and benefit of his afflicted people.
