“When you pray, say…” _Jesus Christ (Luke 11:3)
Any way you cut it, I’m convinced that it is every Christian’s privilege and responsibility to regularly pray “the Lord’s Prayer.” It is one of our Lord’s most precious gifts to us.
But you say, praying the Lord’s Prayer is only a form that can become a meaningless ritual.
Yes, you are correct, that could happen, but, dear friend, it’s your job—to NOT allow it to happen.
The ONE THING for today: Whether it has to do with the practice of your faith or the time-honored traditions of your family or the daily rituals of your own personal life; treasure the rituals in your life, seeing them as precious and delicate containers that hold the sacred and enduring.
