"God confronts us with the dilemma of looking into the future for a 'coming' that is going on now." (Heinz Schurman)
We don't merely ask that the "kingdom come", i.e., grow, as petition. It's also a statment of wonder, of thanks for the great event which we see unfolding before us, and in which unfolding God invites us to participate.
