The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

Our Father

Reflection on the Gospel of the Tuesday
In The First Week Of Lent

 

Matthew 6: 7-15

In today’s gospel the simple prayer that Jesus taught is as new and fresh today, as when it was first spoken. It reveals how things are to be between God and ourselves, and also with one another. Doesn’t this encompass the whole of our life?

The prayer begins with ‘𝙊𝙪𝙧 𝙁𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧’, do we realize how privileged, we are to address God as ‘Our Father’ just like ‘Dada’ or ‘Dad’. In the fascinating true story of Bilquis Sheikh, a Muslim woman’s encounter with Jesus, she named the book narrating the story of her conversion as ‘I dared to call him Father’. And she did that only because she was so awestruck that she would call God as ‘Our Father’, which was strictly forbidden in her faith.

Further on in the prayer the first three petitions concern God and His glory while the second three focus on our human needs. Like stated above, our whole life encompasses just this.

In praising God, in desiring God’s will to be done and God’s kingdom to come on earth; in prayer interact with God and ask for what we need for the day, and for the grace of forgiveness for self and others, and for help and protection in our difficulties.

Today, can we spend some time just praying the Lord’s Prayer slowly, letting each phrase/idea sink into our heart.
