ALL THIS IN THE NAME OF LOVE
The most excellent prayer is the Our Father; because it was taught to us by Jesus Christ himself, Son of God, our Father. In the Our Father there are seven petitions and it is the fundamental and most perfect prayer. When praying the Our Father, be aware of what you say and what you ask for, so that your prayer is more authentic. 1 - In the first petition: hallowed be your name, we ask that God be known, loved, honored and served by all men, and by us in particular. 2 - In the second petition: By the kingdom of God we mean a threefold spiritual kingdom, namely: the kingdom of God in us, or the kingdom of grace; the kingdom of God on earth, that is, the Holy Church; and the kingdom of God in heaven, or Paradise. 3 - In the third petition: your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven, we ask for the grace to do God's will in all things, obeying His holy Commandments as promptly as the Angels and Saints obey Him in Heaven. We also ask for the grace to respond to divine inspirations and to live resigned to the Will of God, when He sends us tribulations. 4 - In the fourth petition: give us our daily bread today, we ask God for what we need each day for the soul (we ask God for the sustenance of spiritual life, that is, we ask to the Lord to give us his grace, which we need at all times) and for the body (we ask for what is necessary for the sustenance of temporal life). 5 - In the fifth petition: forgive us our debts, just as we forgive our debtors, we ask God to forgive us of our sins, as we forgive those who offend us. 6 - In the sixth petition: and do not let us fall into temptation, we ask God to free us from temptations, either by not allowing us to be sawn, or by giving us thanks for not being overcome. 7 - In the seventh petition: but deliver us from evil, we ask God to deliver us from past, present, future evils, and especially from the highest evil, which is sin, from eternal damnation, which is its punishment. Amen means: so be it, so wish. so I ask the Lord and I hope so. Found in Devout Souls.
