Your Kingdom Come

“When we pray “Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,” we are expressing more than an eschatological wish. We are asking God to do immediately in space and time what He does continuously in heaven and will someday do on earth in totality. Until that day, we advance God’s kingdom by petitioning Him to manifest His presence in this service, at this church–the precise location we are praying from in that moment.”
