40 Songs for 40 Days – Day 14

Please refer to the March 5, 2014 – Ash Wednesday post for the Introduction to this Music Experience for Lent.

FSFD014 Song Title: The Lord’s Prayer – Matthew 6:9-13  Luke 11:2-4 (If you don’t have a Bible handy, you can read these passages at BibleGateway.com)

Our Father, In heaven, holy, holy be Your Name.

Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day, our daily bread. Forgive our sins, as we forgive one another.

And lead us not, into temptation. But deliver, us from evil.

This is the prayer, Christ gave to us, to give us a way to ask of our Father

These are the words, Christ teaches us, to help us reach out and be with God.

For the kingdom, and the power, and the glory are Yours.

Forever, and ever. Amen, Amen.

About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.

    On Matthew 6:9-13:
    This is often called the Lord’s Prayer because Jesus gave if to the disciples as a model for them (and us) to keep in mind as we pray. Jesus provided a pattern to be imitated as well as duplicated. We should praise God, pray for his work in the world, pray for our daily needs, and pray for help in our daily struggles.

    On Luke 11:2-4:
    Notice the order in this prayer. First, Jesus praised God; then he made his requests. Praising God first puts us in the right frame of mind to tell him about our needs.

    Nice one, Bonnie. What a gift this simple prayer is to the body of Christ. It crosses so many boundaries of sect and denomination, reminding us of our common ground.
