Introduction to the Lord’s Prayer. Jesus was with his disciples praying, when he had finished the disciples asked Him to teach them to pray. Jesus said, “When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. thy kingdom come. Thy will be don, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil." The Lords prayer serves as a model for us.
Our Father who art in heaven
When we pray, we can address God as “Our Father”. If you know Him as Father, then by all means you can address Him as Father. As children of the family of God, we are able to call God, Our Father. What a wonderful privilege we have, to be able to call the Creator of the Universe, the Creator of all things, Father.
Our Father reigns from heaven. His throne is there and we have access to Him. This access was granted to us by Jesus Christ. How thankful we should be to have such access.
Hallowed by thy name
The word hallowed means holy, divine, revered, sacred and much more. Not only when we pray must we know His name is holy and sacred. We must also remember that His name is holy all the time.
