|Linda's father Del, praying early in the morning in our kitchen.|
Stanley Grenz, in his amazing, deep book Prayer: The Cry for the Kingdom, writes this on the Lord's Prayer:
"Seek above all the hallowing of the Father's name, and cry for the in-breaking of the kingdom into the brokenness of the present." As we pray this way, "the prayer of Jesus truly becomes [our] own."
True prayer is a kingdom-activity. Praying is conversing and conferencing under the realm, the domain, of the King.
When you pray today, pray this way: "Let your kingdom come, let your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven."
(Prayer Summer friends - Linda and I are at our annual summer conference in Green Lake, Wisconsin this week. I have had the time and space to spend a lot of time praying. The amount of rich content and experience we are all receiving is now fuel for the fire of prayer in my heart.)
