My family and I are doing this Challenge during the Lent Season that begins tomorrow and runs to Easter Sunday. We are hoping to make this become a new daily routine.
We are not about removing the same ole things (sweets, fried foods, sodas, junk foods, etc.) as much as our focus is about adding some new practices to grow deeper in the Lord.
We are reciting the short version upon waking and before going to bed each day and we are setting an alarm for mid day or lunch time to recite the longer version daily.
This will be in addition to our regular quiet and devotion time we practice already.
We are hoping that it will allow us to go much deeper in prayer by praying the Lord’s Prayer differently and daily.
Join us! ~ XXOO Michelle Bollom
*Set alarm and recite these 3 X a day during Lent
My Heavenly Father, may Your name be holy in me,
May Your kingdom rule my life
May Your will control me
May You be sovereign on earth as You are in heaven
Give me daily bread for today’s need
Forgive my debts as I forgive my debtors
Lead me not into temptation
Protect me from the evil one
Your kingdom rules in my life, Your power can do anything, and Your glory is forever and ever. Amen
Middle Day/Lunch Time
Our Father who art in heaven… May Your name be hallowed in my duties today… As Your name is hallowed in heaven.
Thy kingdom come… May You reign in my life on earth as You rule heaven.
Thy will be done… In my studying… Teaching… Counseling… As Your will is done perfectly in heaven.
Give me daily bread… For my physical strength… For all my needs this day.
Forgive me my sins… And the consequences of my sins… Including my actions and intent… And forgive others as You have forgiven me.
Lead me not into temptation… Don’t let sin overwhelm me, but give me victory today.
Deliver me from the evil one… Protect me from physical and spiritual harm.
For thine is the kingdom… I recognize Your sovereign control of my life.
For thine is the power… I recognize Your ability to do these things.
For thine is the glory… I give You credit for every answer.
In Jesus’ name…
