The Second Petition of the Lord's Prayer

Your kingdom come.

What does this mean?

God's kingdom comes indeed without our praying for it,
but we ask in this prayer that it may come also to us.

When does this happen?

God's kingdom comes when our heavenly Father gives us his Holy Spirit, so that by his grace we believe his holy Word and live a godly life on earth now and in heaven forever.
