Thy Kingdom Come, 12/21/2013

by

We ask for Thy kingdom to come. Our hearts know that where Thy kingdom is fully come, there is no more darkness, nor suffering, nor threat of evil, nor ignorance. But in this world of change and chance, where for a time we pursue transitory gratifications and flee from passing shadows, open our eyes to see that all good things, even the transitory and small, come from Thy hands, and awaken the spirit of gratitude in our hearts. Implant also the spirit of prayer in us, and make it firm and constant, for when our will is at prayer to Thee, harmful addictions lose their drawing power and the tempter his ability to pose as an angel of light: so that we will not, though fools, call good evil and evil good. In Jesus’ name we ask this; Amen.
