Before jumping in, we take a look at Deuteronomy 6. God reminds God's people as they enter the Promised Land that it was God who provided for them and they better not forget it. They must be very clear that there is only one God, a very jealous God, who isn't going to tolerate being played second fiddle to any other power or authority. And that includes setting oneself in the position of power and authority. Ready to start the Lord's Prayer with this in mind?
In the gospels, the record of the Lord's Prayer is different between Matthew and Luke. Matthew's version would sound most familiar to you, while Luke's is very sparing and you could see where it may not be as useful in worship, but memorable for personal devotional use.
We breeze through the opening lines and hardly think about what they mean. It's actually a radical prayer for revolutionary overthrow! Don't believe me? Watch the sermon video and see what you think then.
