The LORD'S Prayer and music by Fernando Ortega
The LORD'S Prayer as a model for our prayer life.
Prayer is an important part of my life. I don't always know how to pray. I can't imagine life without the resource of the Lord's Prayer. It is important even as it is familiar and taken for granted. It is not 'magical' but it has been and is a model for us to pray.
It has been a part of many worship services. It is recited around communion, around funerals and weddings, before battle, in hospitals.
I wanted to do a hub on it because I myself take it for granted. Maybe we are tempted to relegate it to a Buddhist mantra that is repeated over and over again, but I feel it is different. It is important to me because it was one of the first prayers I heard as a child. Like saying grace or night time prayers.
I identified it with church. I now see it as part of who I am as a Christian. When there is no other prayer that can be prayed and God hears our groans, it is a prayer to be comforted by, a prayer to be encouraged by, a prayer to hold on to.
How Deep The Father's Love For Us - Fernando Ortega
The Lord's Prayer in traditional form
The Lord's Prayer Words
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Fernando Ortega's music helps me worship God
Fernando Ortega does such a great job with traditional Christian hymns; I am sharing some of his music as a complement to The LORD'S Prayer. It was hard to limit myself to these few songs, but some are better than none, in my opinion. Also the beautiful images and presentation help me to remember how wonderful our Creator is.
LORD, I want to be like Jesus...
