Teresa of Avila looked on the Lord’s Prayer not as just a prayer of recitation, but a guide for how we are to be in conversation with the Father. It was less important to recite the words as though it was an incantation and more essential to understand the relationship Jesus wanted us to have with God.
It is a prayer that begins in praise of the Father without whom all that we know would cease to exist.
It moves from praise and into surrender to our Father who is all things good and wants only our good.
Knowing the Father wants our flourishing, we continue in petition, asking God for what we need for the moment.
Wanting to be able to receive the answer to our prayers of petition, we then move into a posture of repentance, to let go of all that creates a barrier between us and the Father.
Continuing to desire a clean heart, we are asked then to let go of resentment and hurt and anger - all that binds our hearts from loving freely.
Finally, realizing our weakness and vulnerability to the pitfalls of our humanity, we call on the power of God for protection against evil.
In this way we grow to know our Father with such tender intimacy - our Creator, our Lover, our Provider, our Encourager, our Protector...the face of Mercy.
