Today's Devotion:

Hallowed…

So he said to them, “When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.” Luke 11:2 Recommended Reading: Luke 11:1-4 Most people connect the word hallow with an evening in October when children wear costumes and ask for candy. Halloween actually comes from the phrase “Hallow Evening” or “Holy Evening,” marking the night before All Hallows’ Day. In the Bible the word hallow means “to regard as holy.” Jesus taught us to approach God in prayer by first acknowledging His holiness. By hallowing the Lord’s name in prayer, we worship Him. In return, our worship revives our spirits and blesses us. When we acknowledge the holiness of the God to whom we pray, it provides absolute confidence in Him. Because He is holy, He would never trick us, harm us, or lie to us. When we say, “Hallowed be Your name,” it gives us the freedom to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread” and “forgive us our debts.” When we pray to a holy God, we are addressing a God whom we can wholly trust. Nothing is more essential than that we should understand this name, for it were almost better not to think of God at all than to think of Him wrongly. Frederic William Farrar

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
