Examine how well you live what you pray as you meditate on theÂ following:-
I cannot say OUR if I keep my faith only to myself and never share itÂ with others.
I cannot say FATHER if I do not trust in His loving and completeÂ concern for me, forgetting that He always answers prayers how and whenÂ He knows is best.
I cannot say WHO ART IN HEAVEN if I am so attached to the ways of thisÂ world that I neglect to seek God first in everything.
I cannot say HALLOWED BE THY NAME if I am unwilling to let HisÂ holiness penetrate my life and help me grow in my own holiness.
I cannot say THY KINGDOM COME if I am not using my life to bring HisÂ love into the world.
I cannot say THY WILL BE DONE if I live by my own ideas of morality orÂ choose to follow the world’s standards.
I cannot say ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN if I am not devoting my lifeÂ to serving Him here on earth.
I cannot say GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD if I am not willing toÂ be generous with whatever God gives me.
I cannot say FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES if I don’t want to put forthÂ enough effort to change.
I cannot say AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US if I stillÂ hold a grudge, if I’m still angry, or if I still insist that otherÂ people change.
I cannot say LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION if I deliberately orÂ knowingly place myself in a position to be tempted.
I cannot say DELIVER US FROM EVIL if I’m not actively fighting againstÂ evil through deeds of love and service for everyone in my life,Â especially those who cause problems.
