He said to them, “When you pray, say: ‘Father, May your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come. Give us each day the food we need. Forgive us our sins, for we too forgive everyone who has wronged us. And do not lead us to hard testing.'” Luke 11:2-4, Complete Jewish Bible
Father – an intimate salutation;
Worship and honor God and His name;
Ask for forgiveness;
We offer forgiveness because that’s what Christians do;
We seek protection to withstand testing;
We pursue God’s best with intense persistence:
Ask and keep asking…
Seek and keep seeking… Not pursuing cheap gifts, but the Holy Spirit.
Knock and keep knocking..
Not pursuing cheap gifts, but the Holy Spirit.
