1. I appreciate these insights into the Lord’s Prayer. Some years ago I was taught to use this as a basis for prayer, and my regular prayer time most often follows this form now. Often I stop after the different phrases–asking for needs or forgiveness–to go into the specifics of the day.

    1. That is exactly how He intended it to be used, as a way of spurring more conversation with the Father! When you stop and add in your own thoughts or petitions or even just stopping and meditating on it, that is praying with intention or “kavanah” which is just how He prayed!

  2. I love that you went line-by-line and included the Hebrew. There’s nothing like learning in the original language. I’ll never look at the Lord’s Prayer the same way!

  3. This stood out to me: “When we ask Him to provide our daily bread, we are asking Him to meet our needs in a way that gives Him the glory and honor and not ourselves.” Great reminder that Relying on God to meet our need his about him and not our efforts.

  4. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. I love the way you broke down each part of the Lord’s prayer.

    I love to pray in different ways. A few years ago, I came up with T.R.U.S.T. as a way to pray. T. Thankfulness R. Repent U. Uplift my requests S. Sit still with God and T. Take Hold of God.

  5. This is so good and such a powerful read! Definitely sharing and saving this so I can refer back to it! Thank you so much for sharing and thank you so much for hosting! Blessings to you! 🙂
