Jesus calls us to live in hope. To live in a way that anticipates the peace that only God can give will touch our lives and suddenly settle on our hearts and minds. How can we prepare for this sudden coming of God’s presence? We pray every week (or maybe, even every day) in the Our Father: “Thy [God’s] kingdom come; Thy [His] will be done on earth…” Why not pray it daily as if it were the first time you ever prayed it? Ask God’s kingdom to come to your family, to your workplace, in your neighborhood, among the people of our nation, and the people of the world!
