Hallowed Be Thy Name

I say the Lord’s Prayer these days to know I have washed my hands for 20 seconds. Doing this has given me the time to think a lot about The Lord’s Prayer. One of the things that has changed about the way that I look at this prayer of Jesus is how I say: “Hallowed Be Thy name.” I say it with a new light and renewed emphasis.

Hallowed means high, holy, exalted, above all, Awe-Inspiring and sacred. In other words, when we speak of God It ought to be with adulation. It ought to be with adoration. It ought to be with breathtaking amazement. It ought to be with the deepest heartfelt emotion. It ought to be with our highest praise and deepest worship. “Hallowed be Thy Name.”

Saying that His name is Hallowed ought to find us with An attitude of humble reverence. It means: We should be so aware of God’s greatness; that we can’t even speak to Him or about Him, without seeing and sensing His grand majesty. Hallowed should fill us with the awareness that This God that we speak of is above anything and everything, we understand. “Our Father which art in Heaven, Hallowed is Thy Name.”

Think of this the next time you say The Lord’s Prayer.
