Jack Van Impe, his wife, Pat Robertston my great grandmother, and her late pastor all professed faith overwhelming and saw the signs which convinced them the end days were near.

I always hear this kind of prayers in catholic but as 6:7 say "But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking."

Perhaps Matthew has a theme of Jesus as King of the Jews, but certainly no more so than, for example, John's Gospel. While there are only about 5 actual references to Jesus as King of the Jews in Matthew, I also count 5 in Mark and 3 in Luke, with at least 11 such references in John, including the dramatic account of Pontius Pilate insisting on this being ...
