You will find everything in The Lord’s Prayer

May you receive glory among all the nations as you have among us,

 

We read for example: May you receive glory among all the nations as you have among us, and May your prophets prove themselves fruitful. What does this mean but Hallowed be your name.

 

We read: Lord of power and might,  touch our hearts and show us your face, and we shall be saved. What does this mean but your kingdom come?

We read: Direct my ways by your word, and let no sin rule over me. What does this mean but Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven?

We read: Do not give me poverty or riches. What does this mean, but Give us this day our daily bread?

We read: Lord, remember David and all his patient suffering, and Lord, if I have done this, if there is guilt on my hands, if I have repaid evil for evil….

What does this mean but Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us?

We read: Rescue me, God, from my enemies, deliver me from those who rise up against me. What does this mean but Deliver us from evil.

If you study every word of the petitions of Scripture, you will find, I think, nothing that is not contained and included in the Lord’s Prayer.

When we pray, then, we may use different words to say the same things, but we may not say different things.

God bless you and your families.
