The renewed mind is at the core of a transformed life, and transformed people transform cities and nations. The renewed mind focuses on the will of God, which is “on earth as it is in heaven” and a belief that everything was settled and paid for at the cross. God is looking for a people who will discover what was bought in that transaction and move according to the reality of His world and release that dominion. Prayer looks much different when you have changed how you think because the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, it is in stock, and within reach….
