One thought on “Project – Making The Lord’s Prayer Your Own

  1. Pondering those questions about the Lord’s Prayer has brought blessings already! The worksheet is interesting, too — I am not drawn to coming up with another interpretation, but on several lines I found myself writing my specific prayer related to it, e.g., “Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections — give me grace to continue “x”; replenish my love for and help me truly love “y.” Ideas have come for four lines already. For me, in this way the worksheet may be very useful quite often to make sure I am accepting the truths of the Lord’s Prayer every moment in every situation. Thank you for this focus!
