Not Just Any Ol’ Prayer

By praying the Lord’s Prayer we are being made into a people whose journey is a sign to the world that God has not abandoned the world to its own devices but is present as a people on the move, a people moving out from their old ways and means, ordinary people who have been given the extraordinary authority to be part of the divine assault upon the realm of evil as those who “cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them” (Mark 6:13).

– Stanley Hauerwas & William Willimon, Lord, Teach Us, p. 14.
