The Gospel today is of great significance for in it, the Son of God teaches us to pray. It is the perfect prayer.
The Lord’s Prayer is the prayer for the Christian journey and has been offered up consistently for the past two thousand years. This prayer links us to all of the great figures in Christian history right up to the present day.
Pray the Our Father with your family. Pray it slowly and really think about the words. Discuss with your family how you can all keep the Lord’s Prayer alive today within a culture that can be at odds with each other.
Thank you for being with us today. We keep all families around the world in our prayers here at the Father Peyton Center.
