Day 22 | Trusting in Your Father
Each phrase of the Lord’s Prayer represents a relationship of trust.
Our Father in heaven — You are my Father, I am your child. I trust your love.
Your kingdom come — You are my King, I am your subject. I trust your authority.
Your will be done — You are my Master, I am your servant. I trust your wisdom.
Give us this day our daily bread — You are my Provider, I am your dependent. I trust your faithfulness.
Forgive us our sins — You are my Saviour, I am a sinner. I trust your mercy.
Lead us not into temptation — You are my Guide, I am a pilgrim. I trust your direction.
Deliver us from evil — You are my Deliverer, I am a captive. I trust your power.
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
