What does it mean to "hallow God's name"? What are we asking when we pray, "Thy kingdom come"? Why does the Lord's Prayer begin with these theological issues, rather than with our own practical concerns? The hosts address these questions and more as they continue to unpack the implications of the Lord's Prayer as part of their series through the Sermon on the Mount.

  • I think the most critical part of the Lord's Prayer which we so often miss is that the first three petitions of the prayer are usually ignored. Hallowed be Thy name is the first: we should wish for God's name and person to be honored and held as holy by the world and ourselves. But how often do we pray for this? Its the first thing Jesus said for us to.

    Thy kingdom come is next, and while some traditions (especially the more dispensational ones) are better at this, reformed people tend to avoid praying for Jesus to come soon. The second petition according to Jesus and the last words in the Bible are the same: come quickly!

    Then there's Thy Will Be Done. Now obviously God's will is going to be done, so this isn't cheerleading, its an expression of our desire and delight that God's will be done, an affirmation of His sovereignty and power.

    Then we get to the usual give me stuff parts. Seems like so often we miss so much.
