What is the first petition of the Lord's Prayer? Hallowed be Thy name.  
What does this mean? Grant that we may rightly know and worship Thee, the only true and living God, and glorify Thee in thought, word, and deed.  
How is God's name dishonored? By cursing and swearing; by ingratitude to God, and contempt of His word and authority; by false doctrine and wicked practice.  
What is the second petition? Thy kingdom come.  
What does this mean? Reign in us more and more by Thy Holy Spirit, and spread the gospel over the whole world, until all nations shall be converted unto Thee and serve Thee in holiness and righteousness.  
Why should we pray for the coming of the kingdom of God, since it has already come in Christ? Because we ourselves are not yet perfect, and because a great part of mankind are either ignorant of Christ or Christians only in name  
Who are not Christians? The heathen, Jews, Mohammedans, and infidels.  
Who are Christians only in name? Those who profess Christ with their lips, but deny Him in their lives.  
What is the third petition? Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  
What does this mean? Grant that we may renounce our own evil will, and cheerfully obey Thine only good and perfect will, even as the angels and saints do in heaven.  
What is the will of God concerning us? That we should be holy, even as He is holy, and that by faith in Christ we should obtain eternal life.
