Hallowed by Thy Name

There are hundreds of Names for the Lord God in the Bible. Each one reflects a different aspect of His Nature and provision for us. God requires that we use His Name when we pray. On our program today we’ll look at the phrase, ‘Hallowed be Your Name’, in the model prayer Jesus gave us to follow, and see how we can best honor God through the use of His Name.

Who art in Heaven

We believe in the NAME of the Lord because it represents all that He is - His character and nature - and the honor due Him for it. No one can come to God, the Father, except by believing that Jesus died and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for our sin. We don’t even have faith enough to believe on our own. Jesus, the author of faith, gives it to us if we are but WILLING to believe and ask Him for it. As we continue our study of the model prayer, we’ll look into why Jesus said we should acknowledge where God resides when we speak with Him.

Who art in Heaven

The Lord's Prayer

We’ve been studying the Model Prayer Jesus taught his disciples to pray and focusing in on why we address God as Father. The word ‘Father’, is defined as nourisher, protector, and upholder. God, our Father, is all that, and more, to us - His children. But, are we ALL God’s children? Does everyone have the right to call Him, Father? This is the topic of this program. Be prepared to write down all the Scripture references as you listen. You’ll want to review them afterward.

Our Father

Though there are requirements for proper prayer, keep in mind, that as a Believer in Christ, we are free to come to God and bear our soul because though He is our Maker and King, He is also our FATHER. Prayer is a conversation between two people who love one another – between two hearts united in one through Christ. Before we begin our study, let’s listen to a song about how awesome it is to be a child of the King of Kings.

Overview of the Lord's Prayer

In Hebrews 1 verse 2 says 'In the past, God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by HIS SON, whom He appointed heir of all things and through whom He made the universe.' It’s clear through this verse that if we really desire to know God NOWADAYS, we need to learn how to communicate with Him through studying the words of Jesus, His Son. Jesus’ instruction to His disciples, commonly referred to as ‘The Lord’s prayer’, is a simplistic model, which contains all the essential elements for an effective prayer. Over the next several programs, we’ll delve into each phrase, explore its meaning and see how it relates to us today.

Watch and pray

In times of distress we often quote Romans 8:28 which says that all things work together for good to them that love God and are called according to His purpose. But often this verse offers little consolation when WE can’t figure out how it could possibly be beneficial. On our program today, our host, Barbara Sandbek shares just such a situation and shows us that there ARE lessons to be learned if we look for them.

How to succeed at your job

As Believers in Jesus, our most important job IN LIFE is to serve as an ambassador – to represent Christ well in word and deed. This is effectively done as we yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Our objective is to tell everyone how they can be reconciled to God through Christ. Doing our job well pleases our Heavenly Father. We work, not to earn our salvation – Jesus did that for us – but rather to prove that we believe what we say we believe. Several things displease God – worry, fear, unbelief, disobedience. These all point to a lack of FAITH or TRUST. As we conclude our series let’s again look at why faith is such an important job requirement.

How to please your boss

On our last program, we examined the faith of the Israelites when they crossed the Red Sea and likened it to the decision we have to make to either step out for Christ - or live for the world. Having looked at an example of demonstrated faith, we’ll now move on to review several situations where this wasn’t the case. We pray that from these studies you’ll be better able to see how well you are fairing out in the faith area.

How to please your boss

We hope you’ve been enjoying our current series, ‘How to succeed at the most important job of your life’. So far, we’ve defined the job and the qualifications and then centered in on ‘how to please our boss’. The key to pleasing our spiritual boss, God, is by having faith in Him. We prove our faith by what we do. Since illustrations make the best teachers, we’ll first take a look at some Biblical examples of people who pleased God because of their faith.
