“Our Father, who art in heaven… hallowed be thy name”
This is a prayer of adoration. The “A” of Acts!
Holy (or hallowed) is God = adoration.
“OUR” is important here. It’s not just because we are saying this prayer together as a church.
We as individuals are sons and daughters of the Father because we are united to the True SON of the Father. We become adopted sons and daughters of the Father. So when we say OUR FATHER, the OUR here also refers to OURSELVES and JESUS!
For Christians, this unity between us and Christ happens at BAPTISM.
