Hallowed be YOUR Name (LD 47; Luke 11:2) | 2012 Catechism Sermons

When we memorize the Lord’s prayer we use this strange language for the Lord to hallow His name. What does this mean that the Lord has to hallow His name? This word hallow means sanctify. If God is holy then why does He need to be sanctified? Are we cheering on an incomplete God? Are we making this request because God is too weak to be consistent with Himself? So, why would we ask the Lord to be sanctified when He is the essence of holiness? If you are curious about these questions please stay tuned to our sermon titled, “Hallowed be YOUR Name.”
