The spiritual practice of saying the Lord’s Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer is the central prayer of Christianity that was part of worship since the very first day. The words are so familiar that sometimes they are recited so automatically that their meaning passes by heart and soul. They become little more than sounds in sequence. On the other hand reciting those familiar words can be a tool to ope the heart. Ion this case the prayer becomes a spiritual practice that helps Christians to balance their selfishness with their ability to listened to God who continues to speak to us in these timeless words.
