In the gospel the Kingdom of God-His loving design and reign over all of creation-has already been restored through the work of Jesus Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit’s presence and yet we wait in anticipation for the full and complete restoration to come when Christ returns. Our attitude and action of prayer demonstrate a restless patience as we look to God expectantly to change hearts, restore communities, and transform the world. We do not think that our prayers can change anything. We know that the One to whom we pray can change everything.
