Prayer as Kingdom-Making

884868374

The Christian knows it is possible to enter into dialogue with this loving God and so work at renewing the earth.  Praying, therefore, is the most critical activity we are capable of, for when we pray, we are never satisfied with the world of here and now and are constantly striving to realize the new world, the first glimmers of which we have already seen. (Henri Nouwen, With Open Hands, 119)
