The Lords Prayer

Our Father in heaven . . .

Whoever has God as Father must have man as his brother.
Leonhard Ragaz

Grasping your hand, father, in the commotion of this time - what a feeling of security.
Grasp your hand, Father, and guide me blindly - show me the way.
Grasp your hand, father, without hesitation, I trust you.

Sabine Lehmbeck

hallowed be your name . . .

The smallest space in which sanctification happens means human heart and human life.

Your kingdom come . . .

Without the prayer of the heart is the prayer of the lips an useless murmur.
The kingdom of God comes by itself and without our intervention.
But we pray that it will come to us too.

Martin Luther

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven . . .

Lord, give me the strength to do whatever you ask me to do.
Then ask me what you want.

Not our weakness is our problem but the way we handle it.

but deliver us from the evil one  . . .

I believe that God can make good things of everything, also from the worst.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Because Yours is the kingdom . . .

God wants to turn the dark yesterday into a bright morning -
last in the shining morning of eternity.

Wherever Jesus is, there is divine omnipotence
in the middle of human powerlessness.

We are surrounded by God here in space and time
and will live in him and be in eternity.
