Your Kingdom Come

Jesus teaches us to pray: “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” – Matthew 6:10

In this vein, pray this with me today:

“O, Lord, come quickly and reign on Your throne, for now often something rises up within me, and tries to take possession of Your throne: pride, covetousness, uncleanness, and sloth want to be my kings, and then evil-speaking, anger, hatred, and the whole train of vices join with me in warring against myself, and try to reign over me.  I resist them; I cry out against them, and say, ‘I have no other king than Christ.’  O King of peace, come and reign in me, for I will have no king but you!  Amen.”  – Bernard of Clairvaux
