"Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your
kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this
day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our
debtors.  And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the
evil one."  ~Matthew 6:9-13

"Hallowed be your name."  What does that mean to us?  Here "name" is used in
the sense of "spirit."  The words mean praise to God for his spirit in the
world, making us better.  We can be especially grateful for God's spirit,
which can give us the strength to overcome all that is base in our lives.
God's spirit is powerful.  It can help us to live a conquering, abundant
life.  So we praise and thank God for the spirit in our lives and in the
lives of others.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may be grateful for God's spirit in me.  I pray that I may try
to live in accordance with his spirit.

Mother asks prayers for a good outcome for a son  who with others is
experiencing difficulties from some managers at work. Janie asks for prayers
of intervention for a friend who is in the depth of despair from a life
threatening addiction. Nancy from PA requests prayers for her sister, her
niece and her niece's family as they are traveling in England, that they may
have a safe and happy trip. Len asks for prayers for the rekindling of the
love between her husband and herself and for the restoration and healing of
their marriage.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
