Paragraph 2632

2632. Christian petition is centered on the desire and search for the Kingdom to come, in keeping with the teaching of Christ.107There is a hierarchy in these petitions: we pray first for the Kingdom, then for what is necessary to welcome it and cooperate with its coming. This collaboration with the mission of Christ and the Holy Spirit, which is now that of the Church, is the object of the prayer of the apostolic community.108It is the prayer of Paul, the apostle par excellence, which reveals to us how the divine solicitude for all the churches ought to inspire Christian prayer.109By prayer every baptized person works for the coming of the Kingdom.
