Matthew 6:7-15

This is how you are to pray: ‘Our Father . . . thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” From reading or watching the news it seems that the Kingdom is non-existent. But we all know the blessed actions of many people who are bringing about the kingdom in their corner of the world. There are endless acts of kindness and charity.  It takes effort and courage to bring about this kingdom but we have the power to do it through the grace of God. Father, may your spirit instill in us the courage and vision to work to make “your kingdom come” in our time and place. May our smallest acts of generosity and hidden efforts for what is right and just be the foundation stones of that kingdom.
