Our Father 1



The prayer the English call the Lord's Prayer is called Our Father in Norwegian, Pater Noster in Latin.
I love that prayer more and more, the older I get.
It embraces all my needs as a human being and my loss of words to worship.

Our Father.
God is my father, not an indefinite spirit of the universe,
not a distant impersonal god.
He is my father.
He knows me by name.
He numbered my days, even before I was born.
He is the shadow at my right hand.
He will never leave nor forsake me.
Our Father.

Its such a solmn thing to know that God is not only our creator and Lord but our Father.....he is not distant and demanding but close to us.
John 1:12, To as many a s believed in him, gave he the right the become the children of God.

The prayer and photo is awesome, makes us lift our eyes toward the heaven and focus on the Father.

I think this is set to music too
