A Prayer for Thursday, October 2, 2014


O God,

When we pray the prayer that
your Son taught us to pray, we pray
“Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.”

Help us accurately to imagine how
your will is done in heaven and
what it would mean for your will
to be perfectly done here and now.

Help us accurately to imagine
what life would look like if
your kingdom was as fully present
here as it is in heaven.

Then, at least so far as it
pertains to your Church,
help us not to settle
for less than that …
