The Kingdom of God – Part 3
Consider memorizing and praying this prayer:
O God, let something happen to us here, something more than interesting or entertaining or thoughtful. O God, let something essential happen to us, something awesome, something real. Speak to our condition, Lord, and change us somewhere inside where it matters, a change that will burn and tremble and heal and explode into tears or laughter or love that throbs or screams or keeps a terrible cleansing silence and dares the dangerous deeds of faith. Let something happen in us here that makes us more like Jesus. Amen.
