The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer is basically separated into two parts. The first part is what we request for God’s sake and the second part is what we request for our sake. Here is what we are asking for in the first part of this prayer.

First of all, we pray that God’s name be hallowed. In this we are asking God to act so that all people would honor and praise Him for who He is and what He has done.

Secondly, we pray that God’s kingdom arrive. In this we are asking God to act so that all people would give their allegiance to Him as their only God and King.

Third, we pray about God’s will. In this we are asking God to act so that all people would submit to what God has commanded in the Scriptures.

Our ultimate goal in this prayer is that these three things occur here on earth to the same degree that they have already occurred in heaven, that they would be true of all people. We persist in offering up these requests to God until He grants them.
