This post begins a series of thoughts regarding the Lord’s Prayer as an affirmation. They will be posted occasionally, gathered in the category “Lord’s Prayer.”
I love the first word of the Lord’s Prayer. Pause and relish it’s implications before continuing. God is guiding all of your concerns involving other people. He is guiding them as well as you, regardless of their personal spiritual views – or lack of them.
The word given to us is “our,” not “my.” We will be guided in our response when there are extreme differences of viewpoint. We will be guided in how far to pursue an activity and when–or whether– to let it go.
He it is that doth go before thee
He will be with thee;
He will not fail thee,
neither forsake thee:
fear not, neither be dismayed”
– Deuteronomy 31:8
O Source and Nurturer of all the world,
