The Lord’s Prayer:Matthew 6:9-13 9 “This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from the evil one.’"

Psalm 135:13-21 "Your name, Lord, endures forever, your renown, Lord, through all generations. 14 For the Lord will vindicate his people and have compassion on his servants. 15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by human hands. 16 They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. 17 They have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath in their mouths. 18 Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them. 19 All you Israelites, praise the Lord; house of Aaron, praise the Lord; 20 house of Levi, praise the Lord; you who fear him, praise the Lord.21 Praise be to the Lord from Zion, to him who dwells in Jerusalem. Praise the Lord."
Exodus 3:14,15 “God said to Moses, ‘I Am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites; I Am has sent me to you.’” God said to Moses, ‘Say to the Israelites, The Lord, the God of your fathers – the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob has sent me to you. This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.”
Our fame won’t change anyone or anything. God’s fame changes both!
Matthew 11:4-6 "4 Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: 5 The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. 6 Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.”
First Two Weeks Prayer Reworded:
Our perfect and powerful father who we approach in complete confidence of receiving mercy and grace, make your name great so others will see you for who you really are and be changed. Break in to this present darkness with your rule and reign circumventing the power that is trying to destroy something and someone that isn’t under their spiritual jurisdiction.
