The Lord’s Prayer.

Matthew 6:9-15 (ESV)
9 Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,
15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

I pattern my prayers after the Lord’s Payer.  Praise God, ask Heaven to come down to earth, ask for your needs, ask for forgiveness and to forgive the people who offend you, ask for the Evil One to not tempt us.

    I read something once about the phrase, “Hallowed be thy Name” from the Lord’s Prayer: How in order for us to truly hallow God’s Name, we need to first know and contemplate the names of God. Hallowed is the name of our Good Shepherd, our Mighty God, our Everlasting Father, our King of Kings, our Lord of Lords, our Wonderful Counselor, our Prince of Peace, our Savior, Provider, Protector, Redeemer and Friend. Wow.
    Undoubtedly I need to pray for God to help me forgive as I have been forgiven, and to truly and deeply wholeheartedly desire to want nothing other than His Kingdom come in every area of my life.
    Christ knows how rough our path can be, and if He-who-is-perfect is praying not to be tempted by evil, how much more do I need to pray that prayer with every breath I breathe….
    Continuing to pray for you and your family, Paul. Thank you for your regular words of spiritual encouragement.
