“Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.” 2 Peter 3:11-12
The way we live and pray makes a significant difference. When we live in a way that pleases God, we are living by faith that Jesus is Lord. This displays God’s wisdom and makes a statement to the unseen spiritual forces of evil (Ephesians 3:10, 6:12). We pray, “Your Kingdom come, your will be done,” and further speed his return.
