a kingdom not of this world

O Lord, 
we are so easily deceived still 
into expecting from you a kingdom 
governed according to the laws of this world.
Keep our eyes fixed on the triumph of life over death through the mystery of the cross,
so that we may grow into a deeper understanding
of the power of your law of love 
over the laws of human expectation,
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
