https://youtu.be/XqSIMQaeAds Lord, You call us with Your challenge. You call us to make our choice. We are to put the past behind us. We are to press on into the future – with You and for You. We hesitate – and we end up doing nothing. Help us, Lord, to turn from our self-centred ways. …

The Lord’s Prayer (8): Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever, Amen.

This is not about a human kingdom. It's not about human power. It's not about human glory. It's about the kingdom of God. It's about the power of God. It's about the glory of God. Human kingdoms rise, and they fall. Human power comes to an end. Human glory fades away. The kingdom of God …

The Lord’s Prayer (5): Give us this day our daily bread.

Our daily bread: Jesus is speaking to us about food for physical growth, and he's, also, speaking us about food for spiritual growth.

The Lord’s Prayer (4): Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Jesus is teaching us to pray. He's teaching us to come to God with praise and thanksgiving. He's giving us encouraging hope for the future. How are we to respond to these things that Jesus is teaching us? We're to pray that our lives will be changed by what we hear from Jesus. We're to …
