Each phrase of the Lord’s Prayer represents a relationship of trust.
Our Father in heaven: You are my Father, I am your child. I trust your love.
Your kingdom comes: You are my King, I am your subject. I trust your authority.
Your will be done: You are my Master, I am your servant. I trust your wisdom.
Give us this day our daily bread: You are my Provider, I am your dependent. I trust your faithfulness.
Forgive us our sins: You are my Savior, I am a sinner. I trust your mercy.
Lead us not into temptation: You are my Guide, I am a pilgrim. I trust your direction.
Deliver us from evil: You are my Deliverer, I am a captive. I trust your power. Matthew 6: 9 – 13
