“Your kingdom come. Your will be done” (Matthew 6:10).

It seems such a harmless petition. We have recited it so repetitiously that it has become innocuous. Its disruption to the present kingdoms in which we live our lives has been lost. Perhaps you are unaware of your kingdom. It is the matrix and framework in which you live your life; offering you a sense of security, manageability, and predictability (words that stand in contradiction to the life of faith). It is a kingdom you seek to preserve and strengthen, and it stands in opposition to anything that brings disruption. Now, pray again the passage.
