Many people are familiar with the Lord's Prayer, at least at the word level. Many have said Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done... maybe hundreds or thousands of times.
But they live lives that say Thy Kingdom go, my own will be done instead.
They live anything but a life focused on the Divine. They get angry about this or that and dispose of family and friends who have a different opinion. They are promiscuous, or addicts of other things. They are seduced by the latest fad from wokeness to tennis shoes. They get angry and jealous and greedy. They fight and even promote the horrors of war. They let their lives and emotions be controlled from the outside via current opinion, advertising, social media, television talking heads, or politicians. Etc. Etc. Etc.
All of this and more shouts Thy Kingdom go!!!
There is, of course, no valid spiritual voice anywhere in history suggesting focusing one's life on Thy Kingdom go!!! or that this would be a good idea.
With so much of the world in this moment of time doing just that, it does create a dilemma as to how to turn such a negative trajectory around.
Dear Good People of Earth, let us pray for guidance and for courage to face this time, to be part of those who truly with all heart and mind say and live Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.
