    I loved this series so much. What I thought of as a simple memorized prayer became beautiful and profound. This series inspired me to also say the 23rd Psalm before I fall asleep each night. God’s Word never ceases to comfort, teach, encourage, rebuke, and fill me each day. And you continue to make His Word come alive. Thanks Brad!

    I have said this prayer my whole life since I was little. My mother always had it hanging somewhere therefore I learned the words early on. As I got older I tried to understand the contexts. And now I do. I am excited to revise it to my understanding, ty Dwight for that possibility. Thank you Brad for this awesome series in something near and dear to me heart for so long.

    I have said this prayer my whole life and taught it to my children before they were school aged as I believed it was a perfect prayer given to us by Jesus. So, that when our own words failed to come forward, we could always rely on the Lord’s Prayer to be an acceptable substitute. When I was diagnosed with a terminal cancer 6 1/2 years ago, I found myself saying it continually (especially during scans and MRI’s) as it was the only thing that would give me peace and comfort. Because of your teachings I now have increased understanding of its context and meaning for which I bless God. I am blessed to have found Walking the Text. Thank you, Brad.
