The Lord’s Prayer
Okay so this is a second post to mention my new song which you can listen to here – sorry about that. It’s just that it’s based on the Lord’s prayer, and I’ve since realised that (among many things that are profound and wonderful about the Lord’s prayer), it really encapsulates everything that we have come to know is involved in the Christian life: Worship (Hallowed be Your name), fellowship (OUR Father, not just MY Father; forgive us as we forgive OTHERS), redemption (forgive…), seeking first the kingdom (Your kingdom come…Yours is the kingdom), prayer praise and prophetic proclamation (the whole thing especially Yours is the kingdom), trusting in God for provision and daily needs (Give us this day our daily bread), deliverance and release from evil – that is a completely fundamental part of any Christian ministry (Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one).
So, appreciation please for the greatest prayer in the world given to us to bring before Father:
Our Father in heaven
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us.
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom
The power and glory
Forever and ever
