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
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
