It is easy to pray the Lord’s Prayer without really thinking about the words isn’t it. ?Neil Hudson?(p. 9) challenges us to think a little more deeply (and indeed carefully) about what we are praying:
These are big words. These are huge words really. Hallowed. Kingdom. Your Kingdom?come. Your will be done. Lead us not into temptation. Deliver us from the evil one. These?are big concepts that Jesus introduces to the disciples who want to learn how to pray. But?you need to hear as well that they are subversive words. They are words that long for?something different. They are words that say may the beauty of heaven and the truth of?heaven, the justice of heaven, may something of the righteousness of heaven be seen?here on earth. May you make a difference, may it change. May it change down my street.?May it change in my family. May it change in my workplace, may it change on my frontline.?May Your will be done. May we see a difference.
