November 5, 2023 • Amen!

THE LORD’S PRAYER ends as it began … with praise to God. The Lord’s Prayer begins with a focus on Our Father in Heaven; His Name, His Kingdom, and His Will, asking that these things be done on earth as they are in heaven. The Lord’s Prayer concludes with a doxology that re-focuses our attention on our Heavenly Father, and His Kingdom, His Power and His Glory.

Today as we wrap up our series on the Lord’s Prayer, it’s good to remember that the Lord’s Prayer is more than a prayer – it is also a confession of faith! It is a focus on God!
• We pray to Our Father in Heaven, because we have access to Him through His Son Jesus, and we know that He loves us and cares about us.
• We Hallow His Name because God’s Name is His Presence and Power in our lives. We hold God and His Name sacred in our lives and with our words.
• We pray for God’s Kingdom to Come in Word, Water, Bread and Wine as we look forward to an eternity in His Eternal Kingdom; we acknowledge that He is our sovereign King.
• We pray Thy Will Be Done because we trust our Heavenly Father’ care for us as He leads us though life; we know His Will is superior to our will.
• As we pray for Daily Bread, we acknowledge that everything we are and everything we have is a gift from His good hand. God is the supplier of our needs.
• As we pray for Forgiveness, we confess that Jesus is the Savior Who has done 100% of the work for 100% of the people. Because of His forgiveness to us, we can forgive other people.
• As we pray for help in Temptation we thank God that He strengthens us to face all trials, tests, and temptations.
• As we pray for Deliverance from Evil, we confess that God has delivered us in the past, is now, and will continue to deliver us from evil.

And at the end of the Lord’s Prayer, after a Biblical doxology, we boldly say “AMEN! — Yea, Yea it shall be so!” To our Heavenly Father be the Kingdom, the Glory and the Power, forever and ever, AMEN!
