Q 192: What do we pray for in the third petition?

A 192: In the third petition (which is, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven,)[1 acknowledging, that by nature we and all men are not only utterly unable and unwilling to know and do the will of God,[2 but prone to rebel against his word,[3 to repine and murmur against his providence,[4 and wholly inclined to do the will of the flesh, and of the devil:[5 we pray, that God would by his Spirit take away from ourselves and others all blindness,[6 weakness,[7 indisposedness,[8 and perverseness of heart;[9 and by his grace make us able and willing to know, do, and submit to his will in all things,[10 with the like humility,[11 cheerfulness,[12 faithfulness,[13 diligence,[14 zeal,[15 sincerity,[16 and constancy,[17 as the angels do in heaven.[18
