 Thoughts on the Lord's Prayer

"I cannot say OUR if I live only for myself in a spiritually watertight compartment;
I cannot say FATHER if I do not endeavor each day to act like His child;
I cannot say, WHO ART IN HEAVEN if I am laying up no treasure there;
I cannot say HALLOWED BE THY NAME if I am not striving for holiness;
I cannot say THY KING­DOM COME if I am not doing all in my power to hasten that wonderful event;
I cannot say THY WILL BE DONE if I am disobedient to His Word;
I cannot say IN EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN if I’ll not serve Him here and now;
I cannot say GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD if I am dis­honest or if I am seeking things by subterfuge;
I cannot say FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS if I harbor a grudge against anyone;
I cannot say LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION if I deliberately place myself in its path;
I cannot say DELIVER US FROM EVIL if I do not put on the whole armor of God;
I cannot say THINE IS THE KINGDOM if I do not give to the King the loyalty due Him as a faithful subject;
I cannot attribute to Him the POWER if I fear what men may do;
I cannot ascribe to Him the GLORY if I’m seeking honor only for myself; and
I cannot say FOREVER if the horizon of my life is bounded completely by time.”
