The First Petition


Matthew 6:5-15

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

              This, the First Petition of the Lord’s Prayer, ardently anticipates that golden age when the secular shall be transformed into the sacred; when HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD shall be inscribed upon the bells of the horses (Zech. 14:20-21); when God’s name shall be great among the Gentiles (Mal. 1:11, 14); when the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea (Hab. 2:14); when God shall be all in all (1Cor. 15-28)!
