A New Commentary on the Lord's Prayer (Part Four)
“The urge to escape overwhelmed me. That’s always my default reaction. Not fight, but flight. ”
I prayed the Lord’s Prayer today; not out of habit, but out of necessity.
The morning had started out well. I woke up to birds singing and the sun shining. As is my habit, I got out of bed, walked downstairs, and made a cup of coffee. Then I looked over at the dining room table and saw my 17-year-old son’s latest painting. I knew that Sam had stayed up late to complete the work for his AP Art class. I was proud of him. So, I took a photo and texted it to extended family members. My pride grew as their response was rapid and glowing.
