Tuesday

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.



Protestant versions of the Lord’s Prayer include this portion. Catholic versions generally do not. This final line is known as a doxology, offering a final word of praise to God.

The inclusion feels fitting.

Together with the worshipful opening of the prayer, this final line focuses appropriately on God. Much of the Lord’s Prayer concentrates on presenting human needs to the Almighty. But this conclusion returns the attention to the One to whom we pray.

May all eternal praise be His alone.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21, NIV)

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. (1 Timothy 1:17, NKJV)

 Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen. (Jude 24-25, NLT)

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
    be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!” (Revelation 5:13b, NIV)
