The Lord’ Prayer

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 and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen

The Lord’s Prayer is a confession of who God is and what our relationship to him is. We call God our
Father. His is name is holy and as his children we are to be holy.
We confess that the Kingdom of Heaven comes to us when we receive the Holy Spirit. The kingdom of
God comes to us in two ways; 1) The kingdom has come in time in Jesus’ birth; the incarnation (Philippians
2:6-11) and 2) in eternity when Jesus comes back again. God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven. The
will of God cannot be thwarted. Satan has no power over God. What is God’s will? Eternal Life (John12:49
God promises daily bread to all; the just and the unjust. We confess that everything we need to satisfy our
body such as food, clothing, and the fields in which our food is produced comes from God.
We confess that our sovereign God forgives us all our sins; known and unknown. The second part of this
confession is difficult for us to hear. We are to love one another as Jesus loves us. The world will know to
whom we belong to if we love one another. To love each other entails forgiveness. It is very hard for one
sinner to forgive another sinner! Our Holy Father will never deny us forgiveness. May we too in God’s
grace find it in our hearts to forgive.
God does not tempt us to sin. God will never let Satan tempt us to the point where we fall. Corinthians
10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not
let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so
that you can endure it.
We ask God to deliver us from evil. We pray in this petition that our Father will deliver us from all kinds of
evil, whether it affects our bodies or souls and everything we need to sustain our earthy life and the hope of
eternal life.
We pray the Lord’s Prayer every Sunday, and so we should. Do we really know what we are praying? Do
we stop to confess that God is our Holy Father and we are to be his holy children? We are justified one day
at a time. Faith alone justifies because we receive the forgiveness of sins for Jesus sake and the Holy Spirit
by faith alone.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. While this is not in the
prayer that Jesus taught us, it is a summary of the power, glory, and the majesty of our Holy Father as
confessed in the Lord’s Prayer.
This prayer is a gift from Jesus. It reminds us of our relationship with our LORD God.

Final Chapter of the Mary Circle

Many of you might remember when the church ladies had Circle Groups named Sarah,
Rebecca, Rachel. Esther and Mary. These groups were formed in 1957 and each female
church member was assigned to a Circle. They met for Bible Study and also assisted
with the funerals at Church. All of the groups except for the Mary Circle had disbanded many
years ago. Since the group was dwindling down to just a couple of members, the Mary Circle
decided to disband in August and donated the last of their money to the church roof fund.
It’s the end of an era.
