I PLACE MY AFFAIRS IN THE HANDS OF DIVINE GOODNESS AND ENTER INTO THE FULLNESS OF LIFE
When Jesus said, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven,” he was affirming that there is a Perfection at the center of everything. He was telling us that when we reach this inward Perfection it will be revealed to ourselves and others, and that it must finally establish the Kingdom of God on earth, as it most certainly will.
Realizing that the Kingdom of God is a kingdom of joy and that the heart of the Eternal is most wonderfully kind, I place my affairs in the keeping of Divine Love and I permit my thoughts to be directed by Divine Wisdom. The Spirit within me guides and directs my path, guides me into peace, prosperity and happiness.
God’s perfect Kingdom is established in me today. The Fatherhood of God is revealed through me as the brotherhood of man. This brotherhood I help to establish on earth today, for I know that it is within all people. This Kingdom of oneness and love and peace draws me close to everyone I meet, in joy and in friendship. Therefore, my prayer for the Kingdom of God on earth is a communion of my own soul with that one universal Soul which overshadows and indwells everything. This is the Kingdom I am recognizing as I affirm: “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.”
