A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

This past week I ran across a new twist on the Lord's prayer from Max Lucado and I hope that it provokes as much thought for you as it did for me.

"There are certain mountains only God can climb. Ascend them and you'll end up bruised and embarrassed. Stay away from them and you'll sidestep a lot of stress. These mountains are described in the final phrase of the Lord's prayer, "Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen."....What protection this final phrase affords. As you confess that God is in charge, you admit that you aren't. As you proclaim that God has power, you admit that you don't. And as you give God all the applause, there is none left to dizzy your brain."

   9"T his, then, is how you should pray: 
   " 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
  10 your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
  11 Give us today our daily bread.
  12 Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
  13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. 14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Matthew 6:9-14 (NIV)
