Prayer for the Kingdom

God of Hope,

My lips say,
“Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done…,”

But my heart says,

“My will,
my world,
and my way.”

How can I pray for your Kingdom,
when I am not yet willing
to relinquish my own?

Loosen my grip on myself,
that I may open my arms
to embrace your vision
for this world.

Amen
