'Thy reign come: Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth.
Matthew 6:10 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Thy kingdom come - The word "kingdom" here means "reign." Note, Matthew 3:2. The petition is the expression of a wish that God may "reign" everywhere; that his laws may be obeyed; and especially that the gospel of Christ may be advanced everywhere, until the world shall be filled with his glory.
Thy will be done - The will of God is, that people should obey his law, and be holy. The word "will," here, has reference to his law, and to what would be "acceptable" to him. To pray, then, that his will may be done, on earth as in heaven, is to pray that his "law," his "revealed will," may be obeyed and loved. His law is perfectly obeyed in heaven, and his true children most ardently desire and pray that it may also be obeyed on the earth.
The object of these three "first" petitions, is, that God's name should be glorified and his kingdom established; and by being placed first, we learn that his glory and kingdom are of more consequence than our wants, and that these should be first in our hearts and petitions before a throne of grace.

"Ye cannot serve God and Mammon" (Matt. vi. 24). He does not say ye cannot very well serve God and mammon, but ye cannot serve two masters at all. Ye shall be sure to end by serving one. The man who thinks he is serving God a little is deceived; he is not serving God. God will not have his service. The devil will monopolize him before he gets through. A divided heart loses both worlds. Saul tried it. Balaam tried it. Judas tried it, and they all made a desperate failure. Mary had but one choice. …

Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!
"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
From that time Jesus began to preach and say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, "My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done."
saying, "Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done."
And since he would not be persuaded, we fell silent, remarking, "The will of the Lord be done!"
