Every word counts when we say the Lord’s Prayer or “Our Father”. Praying the “Our Father” is like calling God’s number on our phones, and He’s the only one who answers even if He’s very busy! It’s just like wearing a helmet and body armor that is bullet proof, fire-proof and radiation-proof! Imagine, a protective gear that repels evil weapons! No superhero can give us that kind of protection!
But do we have to repeat these words over and over again like a broken record? The next time you pray the “Our Father”, why not meditate on the meaning of each and every word? So that this time, when we say each word, we can prove to God that we mean every word that we say, not just memorized words. God will surely answer our “call”.
