Eschatology and Prayer

Prayer is eschatological in nature. Every time we pray we are witnessing to our personal doctrine of eschatology. If our prayer is self-centered then we are saying the end of God’s operation should be to take care of us, to the exclusion of other things. But we should have Christ’s kingdom in view, the totality of things. We should not feel that the goal of history is our self-fulfillment; rather we are to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

About the author

R. J. Rushdoony

Rev. R.J. Rushdoony (1916–2001), was a leading theologian, church/state expert, and author of numerous works on the application of Biblical law to society. He started the Chalcedon Foundation in 1965. His Institutes of Biblical Law (1973) began the contemporary theonomy movement which posits the validity of Biblical law as God’s standard of obedience for all. He therefore saw God’s law as the basis of the modern Christian response to the cultural decline, one he attributed to the church’s false view of God’s law being opposed to His grace. This broad Christian response he described as “Christian Reconstruction.” He is credited with igniting the modern Christian school and homeschooling movements in the mid to late 20th century. He also traveled extensively lecturing and serving as an expert witness in numerous court cases regarding religious liberty. Many ministry and educational efforts that continue today, took their philosophical and Biblical roots from his lectures and books.
