"When you pray 'Thy Kingdom Come'
that means to want the kingdom
of this world to become the kingdom of
our Lord, no matter what It costs, what
self-denial, what hard work, what sacri

that we want the Bible translated Into
every tongue; It means to have churches
and gchoolhouses everywhere: It means
not to shirk out share In the burden of
work and expenses.
"Jaaua never taught anybody to pray
for the salvation of men who could be
measured by the number of square miles
that they covered. The people of the
United States cannot pray 'Thy Kingdom
Come' In the land bordered on the north
by Canada and British Columbia, on the
south by Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico,
on the east by the AUantlo Ocean and on
the west by the Pacific Ocean. No. We
pray for nobody unlet we pray for every

to pray 'that It will keep coming as loner
