Kingdom Living: Hallowed Be Your Name ~ Matthew 6:9

Our Father in Heaven, what is our wish?  What is our request?  What do we want you to do for us?  This is our heart’s desire and prayer in the first place: Father in heaven, let your name be hallowed, sanctified. We pray that you may be glorified as a holy God.  We desire to exalt the LORD our God, to worship at his footstool, at his holy mountain; to praise his great and awesome name, for it is holy, for the LORD our God is holy. You are holy, enthroned on the praises of your people.  We glory in your holy name (and therefore shall our hearts rejoice), because we have trusted in your holy name, to which we will always give thanks, and glory in your praise.  Lord, enable us to glorify your holy name forever, by giving thanks to you with our whole heart, and by bearing much fruit, for by this is our heavenly Father glorified.  O that we might be for God a name, a praise, and a glory, that being called out of darkness into his marvelous light to be to him a people for his own possession, we may proclaim the excellencies of him who has called us.  O that we may be your children, the work of your hands, that we may sanctify your name and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob and stand in awe of the God of Israel; and that we may be to the praise of his glory.  Enable us as we have received gifts, so to use them to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace – in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.  And if we suffer, enable us to suffer as Christians and to glorify God in that name; for this is our eager expectation and hope: that always Jesus Christ may be honored in our bodies, in life and death.  Amen & Amen.
