“Our Father in heaven. . .” Matthew 6:9
Technically the Lord’s Prayer is in John 17 and this prayer is the Disciples Prayer that Jesus taught them to pray. He was a radical change agent. Nothing would ever be the same after He came. For thousands of years, Hebrews prayed in the name of someone else’s God. Linked by history and ancestry of course, but still, they prayed in the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – their forefathers. Thank Him that He is your Heavenly Father. He’s not a distant, detached God that you only know about through your genealogy. You know Him and He’s intimately involved in your life.
