    Q. 100. What does the preface of the Lord’s Prayer teach us?

    A. 100. The preface of the Lord’s Prayer (which is, Our Father in heaven) teaches us firstly to draw near to God with all holy reverence and confidence as children to a father able and ready to help us; and secondly, that we should pray with and for others.

     

    Q. 101. What do we pray for in the first request?

    A. 101. In the first request (which is, Hallowed be your name) we pray that God may enable us and others to glorify him in all in which he makes himself known; and that he would overrule all things for his own glory.

     

    Q. 102. What do we pray for in the second request?

    A. 102. In the second request (which is, Your kingdom come) we pray that Satan’s kingdom may be destroyed, that the kingdom of grace may be advanced and ourselves and others brought into it and kept in it; and that Christ’s return and the kingdom of glory may come quickly.
