We have no power, in-and-of-ourselves, to obey the Lord. Therefore we are commanded to pray, “Father, enable me to accomplish Your will here on earth as the angels do in heaven—immediately, completely and joyfully." Thomas Watson wrote the following about this famous portion of the Lord’s Prayer:
We pray for two things; 1: For active obedience; that we may do God's will actively in what he commands. 2. For passive obedience; that we may submit to God's will patiently in what he inflicts.
We pray that we may do God's will actively, subscribe to all his commands, believe in Jesus, which is the cardinal grace, and lead holy lives. … Knowing God's will may make a man admired, but it is doing it that makes him blessed.…
 The bare knowledge of God's will is inefficacious [unable to bring about a desired change; useless]; it does not better the heart. Knowledge alone is like a winter-sun, which has no heat or influence; it does not warm the affections,
or purify the conscience. Judas was a great luminary, he knew God's will, but he was a traitor.
 Knowing without doing God's will, will make the case worse. It will heat hell the hotter. 'That servant which knew his Lord's will,' and did it not, 'shall be beaten with many stripes.' Luke 12: 47. Many a man's knowledge is a torch to light him to hell.
With all this in mind, we could elaborate on the simple “your will be done” petition with the apostle Paul’s prayer found in Colossians: “…asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light” (Colossians 1:9-12 ESV). Praying that we may know, apply, understand and do God’s will is what the Christian life is all about. Anything less is just a counterfeit religious experience.
