How often do Christians quickly recite the Lord’s Prayer never stopping to contemplate or meditate on the fullness of each phrase? Hidden within are the three theological and four moral virtues that both become a guiding map to our life and bring us closer to God.

The Virtues of The Lord’s Prayer

Faith

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Hope

Thy kingdom come.

Charity

Thy will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Temperance

Give us this day our daily bread,

Justice

and forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us,

Prudence

and lead us not into temptation,

Fortitude

but deliver us from evil.

Amen.
