Hallowed Be Your Name (Luke 11:2; LD 47) | 2008-2009 Catechism Sermons

Christ tells us to pray that God’s name would be hallowed. We may not know what this term means, but it simply means that God’s name would be holy or sanctified. If God is the standard of Holiness or sanctification then why would we pray that this would happen? Does this mean that we ourselves make the name of the Lord Holy? Does this mean that God needs His creatures to be Holy? How are we to understand this request? Please stay tuned as we work through these questions in our sermon titled, “Hallowed Be Your Name.”
