A common problem we all have is that we find it difficult to stop working. Fear that things will fall apart, worry that our efforts will not be enough, fear that we will be found useless. By turning to the Lord in praise we are made to deal with the issue inside of us that causes us feel like our worth is found in what we can do and accomplish.
Today we wrap up our series in the Lord’s Prayer by reflecting on the doxology of praise used by the church at the end of the prayer.
Today’s Scriptures | Matthew 6.7-13
Matt. 6:7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 “So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
Matt. 6:9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 ‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
