Gospel of Luke 11:1-4 Reflection
Today we have the disciples asking Jesus about prayer. He replies to them and teaches them the Lord's prayer.
Much has been written about this one prayer so I shall not try to add anything to the wisdom of the ages except one little personal point; the idea of God as Father.
What a revelation this whole idea of God as intimate, loving Father this must have been to the Jews. And it should be the same to us, constantly coming to know God as Father in a new and vibrant way just as we come to know our own parents and children more and more as time goes on.
Not much more to say about the Lord's prayer, so maybe I'll just say it!
