What’s the big deal about the Lord’s Prayer?

If you have some church background, chances are that you’ve at least heard the Lord’s Prayer, if you haven’t memorized it at some point.  Its a classic Christian basic.  Unfortunately, its easy to turn it into mere movements of the mouth & whip out the droned rote words without much heart connection.  I think this is a travesty & the reason I think this is because of my experiences with the Lord’s Prayer over the last few months.

Consequently, over the next couple of Wed nights, Pastor Frieda & I will be sharing about the Lord’s Prayer, its meaning & relevance in our 21st century living.  Tonight I talked about what it means to see & acknowledge God as our Father.  If you want to download the message, click the link:  Our Father

Otherwise, what are some things that help you relate to God as your Father?  Check back tomorrow for more insights on God as our Heavenly Father! 🙂

Since having Stephanie, God has really shown me how much He loves me as a Father. Here’s what I mean: When Stephanie was an infant I would hold her in my arms and look into those beautiful blue eyes and just turn to mush, when she smiles it warms my heart in a way that can’t be explained and when she laughs – oh my gosh! And now that she is walking I am just amazed! I am so deeply in love with her but God, on these special occasions, reminds me that what I feel for her is limited by my earthly knowledge of what love is and He whispers in my ear that He loves me in a way that I could never understand because He is the creator of love, He loves me, as my Heavenly Father, more than I could ever love my daughter. I can’t tell you how much that just blows my mind and brings me to tears because I know that I am so undeserving of that great love.
