I used to pray Your Kingdom come;
praying in the four horsemen and earth
burned and consumed so that we could
rise, meet in the air and sit at the banquet
table of the great feast –

But I've learned that Jesus flipped his wrists
and snapped the tablecloth out from under
the feast, tied it around his neck super-hero
style and descended  to earth, bringing the
banquet with him -

Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Daily bread broken and shared, baked from
wheat harvested from neglected soil and sat
on sparse tables so that it can fill the empty space
inside aching bodies desperate for the kingdom
of God to come


*Credit to Pastor Mark Tindall of Blue Route Vineyard church in Media, PA for the imagery of Jesus bringing the tablecloth to earth - from a sermon preached on 01/26/13.
