Going About It Our Own Way

What a tragedy in the Church and in the families in the Church! Our Lord gave us the model to pray and what could be more clear? It is "our" Father and give "us" this day "our" daily bread; forgive "us" our trespasses and deliver "us" from the evil one. It's a prayer, and a model for prayer, meant to be prayed together with other believers.

I'm sad that we don't pray together like that; sad that we don't feel the need to.

(Maybe one day we will!)

Not meant as a negative criticism but just a sadness over the fact of what is! We are prosperous and full; but God's Spirit can help us see what Christ advised us to recognize in Revelation 3:17.
