Your Faith Journey 36

Your Faith Journey
 
Jesus’ disciples asked him to teach them to pray. The prayer Christ shared is the beginning portion of what is commonly known as, “The Lord’s Prayer.” Many people are familiar with the version from the King James Bible, which includes the Old English terms “thy” and “hallowed.” For those of us that recite the prayer weekly, or daily, we can forget the significance of what Jesus shared and message within the prayer. It can be helpful to look at other translations of scripture to see verses and familiar passages in new ways. Below is Jesus’ prayer he taught the disciples from the Living Bible. You’re encouraged to pray using it as a prayer guide this week.

“Father, may your name be honored for its holiness; send your Kingdom soon. Give us our food day by day. And forgive our sins — for we have forgiven those who sinned against us. And don’t allow us to be tempted.” – Luke 11:2-4 TLB
