Jesus didn't give us The Lord's Prayer as an automatic plug-in. Yes, it's a ready-made prayer, but it's not made so that we don't have to think about what we're saying. Jesus understands how we're wired inside. He knows we can be tempted to love what He can do for us more than loving Him for who He is.
The Lord's Prayer points us to God first, starts our focus with Him. That's a pretty good way for us to get a good perspective on our issues. William Barclay points out that the Lord's Prayer '...has two major parts: the first for God's benefit, the second for ours. Honour the first part, and the second is guaranteed.'
Part one begins with 'Our Father'. We are not approaching Santa with our gift list - we are entering family. Family - coming with a responsibility to our brothers and sisters. Family - coming with security and benefits. 'Our Father' reminds us that what God says goes. The Lord's Prayer might feel like a packaged prayer, but it doesn't mean we don't think about it.
So what now? The next few days we are going to turn our mind to the Lord's Prayer. Use this time to think about prayer in a rounded way. Over-familiarisation of famous Bible passages can dilute the meaning for us. Look up this famous prayer in a variety of translations online (Luke 11:2-4; Matthew 6:9-13). Or refresh the words by writing it out in your own words.
