Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 6:9-13
Allow me to share with you some important insights regarding this passage from Matthew Henry's Commentary:
We desire and pray that the name of God, that is, God himself, in all that whereby he has made himself known, may be sanctified and glorified both by us and others, and especially by himself. “Father, let thy name be glorified as a Father, and a Father in heaven; glorify thy goodness and thy highness, thy majesty and mercy. Let thy name be sanctified, for it is a holy name; no matter what becomes of our polluted names, but, Lord, what wilt thou do to thy great name?” When we pray that God’s name may be glorified, We make a virtue of necessity; for God will sanctify his own name, whether we desire it or not. He said in Scripture, "I will be exalted among the heathen." So, we ask for that which we are sure shall be granted; for when our Saviour prayed, "Father glorify thy name," it was immediately answered, "I have glorified it, and will glorify it again."
We will discuss this passage further in the next broadcast.
