Day 113: The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus addresses God as “our father, which art in heaven”. This is an attitude we should emulate, as well as the sorts of things that Jesus prayed for.

We are to ask Him for support, for obtaining our daily bread, but also for support in living a righteous life, that we will be delivered from the evil influences the world. We are also to acknowledge our Father, that He is all-powerful and that all the blessings that we have come from Him. We are to thank and praise Him in our prayers and by doing so will exhibit the same attitude that Jesus showed the Lord’s Prayer.
