Our King and Father

“When Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:9 to pray, ‘Our Father in heaven,’ he is telling us that the prayer-hearing God is majestic and merciful. He is high, and also dwells with the contrite (Isaiah 57:15). He is a king, and he is a father. He is holy, and he humbles himself. He is far above us, and ready to come to us. He has plans for the whole earth and for the universe, and wants us to care about these great plans and pray about them; and he has plans for your personal life at the most practical level and wants you to pray about that.”

—John Piper in his sermon 
“Our Deepest Prayer: Hallowed Be Your Name”

My prayer this week: Father God, thank you for being everything I need and more. You paid the ultimate price, sacrificing your Son’s life for mine, and deemed me worthy of your divine love. What a King — what a Savior — what a Father — and what a Friend! “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1).
