Advent Sermon Series on the Lord’s Prayer

On Prayer: The Lord’s Prayer in Today’s World by Gerhard Ebeling (Fortress Press, 1966)

ebeling hallowed be thy name
Ebeling: “Hallowed be Thy Name”
  • Ebeling ties the first petition to Advent: “The decisive thing is waiting on God” (21)
  • This puts the one who prays in the position of a beggar.
  • Christian praying gives priority to God’s Word: “…we must pray to God on behalf of God; that he would take up his own cause, that he would appear, that he would reveal himself, that he would arise as God, that he would in very truth become God” (24)
  • God hallows His name by taking on our humanity and coming to us as the child of Mary.

ebeling thy kingdom come
Ebeling: “Thy Kingdom Come”
  • “Prayer is turning to God….Prayer is turning to the future” (29)
  • “Each petition of the Our Father is such a cry for a future, a crying out for God’s future because there threatens to be no future for man” (30)
  • “Each of the petitions can be understood only as a cry from the depths” (30-31)
  • This is not a prayer for an absent kingdom but a kingdom that is present now in Christ Jesus (33)

Ebeling” Thy Kingdom Come”-cont
  • The old man is called “old” for the very reason that he is now antiquated, subject to the past . He has no more time (37).
  • The new man is called “new” because his future is God’s future. He has time (37)
  • The kingdom is received by faith alone that suffers God to come. Ebeling cites Luke 1:38.
  • We pray this petition in the certainty of the Lord who is the Alpha and Omega (Rev. 21:4-6) (38).

ebeling thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Ebeling: “Thy Will be Done on Earth as it is in Heaven”
  • This is not a prayer that turns its back on the world but rather one imploring God’s will to be done in the world (39).
  • “Faith lives in surrender to the God-world-event” (41) that is to the coming of Jesus who was crucified to fulfill God’s will to save us.
  • Atheists, religious fanatics, and legalists all misread this petition.
  • In this petition we pray against all that opposes God’s will revealed in Christ. Also note Ebeling’s discussion of the distinction between God’s “hidden” will and His “revealed” will (49).
