“Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.”   Matthew 6:9, RSV


By merely reviewing the first few lines of the Lord’s Prayer, we gain a renewed respect

. . . a healthy and wholesome sense of reverence for our Almighty God and Father.

Rather than causing us to run from Him and hide in fear, I find that such an awesome respect makes me want to come close to Him, to wait quietly for Him to work.

And so I urge you to slow your pace, to approach His “hallowed name” thoughtfully.

Take time!

Give Him the respect He deserves. Wait on God.

In return, He will give you a clearer vision. Furthermore, He will soften your will and make you want to know and do His will.
