Our Father, who art in Heaven …




The first line of the Lord’s Prayer addresses our great God. It’s a respectful greeting, a reverent salutation, and a reminder of the One to whom we speak in prayer.

“Our Father, who art in Heaven” is a statement of adoration and worship. We recognize that God is the Creator and Ruler over all. And we are in awe of His holiness and greatness, for there is none like Him.

He is Jehovah, the Almighty, and the One who saves.

Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
Nehemiah 9:6, KJV

The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
Psalm 24:1-2, KJV

He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
Psalm 89:26, KJV

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1-2, KJV



Sometimes I feel like it’s easy for us to take God too casually. 

Yes, He adores His children and welcomes us to come into His Presence without fear. But, the formal address that opens the Lord’s Prayer serves as a wonderful reminder of the honor due our great God. 

For He is our Abba Father, but He is also the sovereign Ruler of all.
