The Lord’s Prayer

A doxology “acclaims and celebrates the glory (doxa) of God.”

Jews, followed by the early Christians, customarily added a doxology to the end of a spoken prayer.

The Lord’s Prayer

For example, David in 1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

The Lord’s Prayer

What does the traditional doxology add to the Lord’s Prayer?

How should it impact our praying and our living?

“Lexorandi, lexcredendiest”

“The way we pray reveals what we really believe”

The Lord’s Prayer

The doxology raises a question:

To whom do these things (kingdom, power, glory) belong?

It affirms that these belong to the Triune God alone, and not to any pretenders.

The Lord’s Prayer

“In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.”

Luke 2:1

“[Augustus] gave peace, as long as it was consistent with the interests of the empire and the myth of his own glory.”

The Lord’s Prayer

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah . . . out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel . . . 

And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth. And he will be our peace”

Micah 5:2,4-5

The Lord’s Prayer

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father,

full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

The Lord’s Prayer

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

Luke 2:13-14

The Lord’s Prayer

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

“Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

Matthew 21:4-5

The Lord’s Prayer

“Caesar’s glory is full of brute force and deep ambiguity.

God’s glory – Jesus’ glory – is full of grace and truth. The royal babe in the cow-shed overturns all that human empire stands for.”

N. T. Wright

The Lord’s Prayer

“For the kingdom, the power,and the glory are yours,now and for ever. Amen.”

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven”

God’s kingdom as “heavenly culture”

Earthly kingdom as “I-culture”

The Lord’s Prayer

“For the kingdom, the power,and the glory are yours,now and for ever. Amen.”

God’s power versus I-power

The Lord’s Prayer

“For the kingdom, the power,and the glory are yours,now and for ever. Amen.”

God’s glory versus I-glory


The lord s prayer lent 2011

The Lord’s Prayer

“For the kingdom, the power,and the glory are yours,now and for ever. Amen.”

The doxology at end of Lord’s Prayer invites the True King to expose and heal our selfish devotion to the I-kingdom and the I-culture.

The Lord’s Prayer

Can we pray this prayer with soft, open hearts?

Are we willing and do we desire for God to expose our selfish idolatries and to burn away what is I-centered rather than Thou-centered?
