Sometimes doodling helps you to take something into yourself and come to a deeper understanding. A number of years ago I doodled The Lord’s Prayer in a notebook. I came across these pictures today and found they still drew me further into the conversation with God. What would your doodles look like?
God, there is none like you. Christ followers are a part of Your kingdom here on earth.
You know our needs better that we do—we tend to focus on our temporal wants. Thank you for providing our needs.
Forgiveness is not an option for us; it is a command. You paid the price for all of our sins, so now we are debt-free in your eyes. Give us the heart and strength to follow in your footsteps.
I used to use the word TEMPTATION in context with things I considered bad, such as murder, stealing, pornography, and mayhem. It belongs there, but it can also be as subtle as over-booking myself so I don’t have time for God or my family, wanting to always be the center of attention, or choosing easy money over honor. You are all-powerful creator, redeemer, and friend, and you have promised us a place in your eternal kingdom. I fall on my knees is awe, praise, and thanks. Amen.
The Lord’s prayerOur Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.
