THE LORD’S PRAYER: 

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

I’ll proclaim the Name of the Lord, ascribing greatness to my God! You’re my Rock and Your work is perfect! [Deuteronomy 32:3-4a]

  • Yourself: Deeper love for your Creator

Father, I have concern for insignificant things that are here today and gone tomorrow. In comparison, You have compassion for people, cities and everything within them. Thank-you that You care greater than I do. [Jonah 4:10-11]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Who can discern his own errors, Lord? Please acquit me of my hidden faults. [Psalm 19:12]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

Thank-you Lord God that your salvation plan and promises in Faith, extends not just to me but to my whole household.  [Acts 16:31]

 “For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”
