The Our Father

I cannot say “Our” if my life has no room for others and their needs

I cannot say “Father” if I do not believe in Him

I cannot say “who art in heaven” if all I care about are earthly things

I cannot say “thy kingdom come” if I don’t take time to pray

I cannot say “on earth as it is in heaven” if I worry more about what others think of me then what God thinks of me

I cannot say “give us this day our daily bread” without giving to others first

I cannot say “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” if I keep grudges and don’t forgive others

I cannot say “lead us not into temptation” if I stay in situations where I know I’ll be tempted

I cannot say “deliver us from evil” if I’m not spiritually prepared

I cannot say “for thine is the kingdom” if I don’t obey God’s laws

I cannot say “thine is the power” if I am unwilling to let God control things rather than try to control everything myself

I cannot say “thine is the glory” if I seek glory for myself first

I cannot say “amen” unless I believe and live in this prayer


Jesus taught us how to pray and He taught us to call him

Our Father

Who art in heaven

Hallowed be thy name

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done

On earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day

Our daily bread

And forgive us our trespasses

As we forgive those who trespass against us

And lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from evil, amen

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory

Forever and ever

    in this particular topic, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about!


  2. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was
    good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going
    to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
