The Lord’s Prayer: Part 1 ( Our Father )

29398_1280703869156_3490772_n (2)

Scripture reference;

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.” Matthew 6:9 KJV

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” John 1:1-18 KJV

 

Have you ever heard or read “The Lord’s Prayer”, and wondered who the Father is? Have you ever considered the phrase “Our Father”, and thought about the scope of its meaning and relevance to your own identity—and to your own life?

 

Before I typed any of this post I typed, “Bible verses about our Heavenly Father” in the google search bar. There were pages of results. I chose the passage above, because it really seemed to sum it up well, but if you pray for understanding you can find something about Him on every page of the Bible. Here again is “The Lord’s Prayer”. I hope what I have shared today blesses all who would pray it.

 

The Lord’s Prayer

“9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” Matthew 6:9-13 KJV

    • I am so glad you found it to be hopeful. That is what I strive for.

      I think about different approaches to Bible study like the ones where people are looking for formulas to follow so that they can live Godly lives, and they scrutinize themselves looking to see if they have improved. Those types of Bible study make me uneasy, because even on my best day I can still see my sinful thoughts, words, and actions.

      The only thing I know to do is to just keep running to Him and asking Him to forgive me and to help me, and I really do believe it is scriptural, so whenever I study the Bible I try to see what the Lord is Like and what He’s doing on the pages, and that gives me peace. The Bible instructs us to magnify Him, and I think that this is one way to do that. 🙂

      Love and Blessings,

  3. Another great post Theresa!! Have you ever seen The Father’s Love Letter? I happened upon it a number of years ago during a particularly rough patch and the bible verses it contained kept me on track but all in all I just think it’s a beautiful compilation of verses. http://www.fathersloveletter.com/text.html

  4. Thank you for making us think more deeply about our Father, Theresa. This post reminds me of an older book I read last year that another blogger suggested. I was thrilled when I happened upon it at a thrift store and bought it for a loonie (Canadian dollar). The book is: A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 by Phillip Keller. It gave me the same sense of Fatherly love that your words here do. Have you read it? I think you’d love it.
    Blessings & hugs ~ Wendy
