Per Bible prophecies: The world is not going to get “better” over these next few years. Jesus will reign on earth and bring change for the world after “the end”.
Our “God of the Ages” is still actively involved with His creation.
The God of the Ages has accomplished His plans throughout history, He is continuing to accomplish His plans now, and He will cause His plans for the future to happen.
Just as we now see the past unfolded through historical records, we will someday see the future events of God’s plan unfold. – Source: God of the Ages
So we need not pray for the world to be “getting better” now, as I heard in a recent prayer. It ain’t happenin’ folks. 1
“Getting a better world” is a nice wish, but …that is not coming to reality on earth until AFTER the Rapture and after the subsequent world turmoil with the Antichrist, and after “the end” with Armageddon. That nice wish we may really want now – will not actually happen until Christ’s Spectacular Millennium.
“Thy will be done…”
Our prayers should be for God’s will, as in “Thy will be done” – along the lines of…
“‘Our Father, who is in heaven….” – Matthew 6:9-13
Lord use me to bring others to salvation in Christ, one by one.
May my life witness honor you in all that I do, with all that I am.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” – Luke 10:27.
Learn to rely on the Spirit. Now, because I am His, I am truly an eternal child of the King of Kings. And because that is true, it behooves me now to live as what I am — an eternal Child of the King. I move and live with confidence in Him. It’s a learning process. I learn daily. I learn to rely on the Spirit of God inside me, more and more, as I read in His Word what He has said about “being Christian“.

Excerpt: “If you believe that Christ was God in the flesh (John 1:14; John 6:51) and sacrificed Himself on our behalf – then you are part way there to walking into His Kingdom. But, that is not enough. We must follow Him. And God has told us clearly what it is to really “follow” Him. Are you truly “following Christ”? [Even Satan “believes” in Christ! But He does not follow Him.]
Being ¨Christian¨ is not a matter of us determining what is Christian and what is not. Being ¨Christian¨ is a matter of God. He determines reality. He has already determined how it is to be. Through the Bible we can know His will by ¨accurately dividing the Word of Truth¨ (2 Timothy 2:15). God has not told us to make our own way. Don´t deceive yourself into Hell (Galatians 6:7).
We cannot choose our way over His declared way, live in rebellion against Him – and expect that He will then forgive us when we reach His pearly gates.”
