confidence and the kingdom

This morning's prayer is a personalized form of a paragraph from Dallas Willard's, "The Divine Conspiracy".

Lord, our confidence in You places us into a living union with The Kingdom Among Us. Our union with You allows us to now be part of Your conspiracy to undermine the structures of evil, which continue to dominate human history, with the forces of truth, freedom, and love. We quietly and relentlessly align ourselves with these forces, wherever they are, because we know what is cosmically afoot. To "overcome evil with good" is not just something for an individual effort here and there, it is actually what will come to pass on this earth. The power of Your resurrection and Your continuing life in human beings assures of this.

Let Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven!
