Wanted: Prayer Warriors

"In order to really pray "thy kingdom come," we need to expand the definition of "kingdom" with the concept of "culture." Then we begin to see that Jesus is not a representative of a quaint forgotten kingdom, nor a fairy tale figure, nor a dress-up character wandering the world like Mickey; he is the King of the universe who has established a contra-culture that is growing to overthrow the dominion/culture of sin and death. The Sermon on the Mount is the primary text for us to understand the "culture" Jesus is establishing and the Lord's Prayer is the distilled essence of this Christian Magna Charta."
