In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus not only gives us a dynamic template for radical and relevant communion with the Father, but also describes a life of Pursuing Kingdom Priorities. The centerpiece of this prayer, found in Matthew 6:10, compels us to pray and work for the transformation of our world; “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
