12.2.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on prayer. Part 18. The Lord’s Prayer.

DEVOTION:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

This prayer starts with reverence. Then action. Then a request. Then forgiveness. Then deliverance. And finally another request.

I do like the thought once again, that we start our prayers with reverence and awe. Our Father, hallowed by thy name. There is no other name but the name of God.

So, as a blueprint for our prayers, this one wins. I’m going to really start to focus on changing my prayers so that they begin with reverence first instead of diving right in….

I just wanted to mention this today. We’ll dive back into the Lewis book tomorrow….

    Thank you!😊
    I start my day with the Lord’s prayer and Psalm 23….it is so important for me to give thanks and praise to stay in gratitude for all God has done in and with my life. He truly did for me what I couldn’t or wouldn’t do for myself and today I have a life I never thought possible!

    I love this prayer…I love the words, how it sounds, and what it means. I love that as a corporate prayer we are praying for something bigger than ourselves, Standing with our sisters and brothers we , as a church, pledge our devotion…on earth as it is in heaven
    Also, I love that the prayer becomes personal, intimate. God, your name is set apart. You are everything to me. I seek your will for this situation. This is my need, my daily bread. I ask for strength in this battle. I seek your face s I go into my day.
