the Lord’s prayer : remix
[been hanging out in Matthew lately. And getting wrecked by the simplicity and other-than-ness of Jesus as He walked forth life and ministry. wrecked by the invitation to meet with the Lord in the secret place and to pray directly to the throne of God. and just wrecked by the goodness of the Lord to provide, steal away anxiety, and bring His Kingdom to earth today and in its fullness soon.]
Abba, there is no one like You.
Your Name is so lined with holiness, so absolutely other-than anything the world could offer. You alone are worthy of all honour and glory and praise.
Your Kingdom is our dream. Our one ambition. Our exceedingly great reward. We want to see the earth like heaven - Your presence all around us, Your love our motivation in all things, Your truth our foundation and guiding light.
Your way is higher, better, and far-more beautiful than anything we could ask or scheme. So have your way in us. Have your way in this home, in this city, in the nations. We find peace in your sovereignty. We glory in your sufficiency.
You are our perfect provider. We trust you to give us all that we need, to fill us, nourish us, and lead us in your perfect time.
Your blood washes us, Jesus. We stand marked by grace, pure and forgiven only because of your extravagant love. Give us your eyes and your heart to live out this same love to everyone around us.
Protect us from the attacks of the enemy and lead us in your victorious light. Guard us from anything that steals or distracts our focus and attention from you.
You are our King, Powerful and Majestic.
You are ablaze with glory and beauty.
From the beginning of time. On every page of history’s story. Today. and always.
amen. and amen.
