It must be the most famous prayer in the world, and we know it as "The Lord’s Prayer"—the Paternoster of earlier days.I Jesus taught it to His disciples, and so it has been passed on. But what does it actually teach us? What are its founding principles, and why is it so vital? What does it mean to call God "our Father"? Aren’t the heavens a long way off? And if we want God’s name to be holy, how does that work? Jeff Lucas takes time to work through this "model of prayer" in depth, and gives us plenty to reflect and act upon, personally, and to pray for, globally. He looks at the topic of prayer itself—one so important to us as Christians yet so hard in practice for so many—and stresses that this is the community prayer: this is for us as a body, not just as individuals. Whether it is asking for our daily bread, forgiving and seeking forgiveness, or exploring what it means for God’s will to be done, these Bible Daily notes are food for the brain and sustenance for the spirit.
