Hallowed  Be Your Name

Christians  often say the Lord’s Prayer.     But,  it is so well memorized  that they might not really think  about what they are saying.     As Jesus taught us  in Matthew 6:9  ( NASB ),  we might start out  by saying,

Our Father  who is in heaven,
Hallowed be  Your name.

We know  when we say  the word  hallowed,  it  means we want  God’s “name”  to be holy  and pure  in our hearts  and minds.     So,  how might that  be done?     There are many Bible verses  that point us  in the right direction  of making  God’s “name” holy  in our hearts  and whole being.     As we think about the few listed below,  let us think  about how these sorts  of things  should be  in our lives  —  and let us remember  that the Lord’s  name  includes everything that He is  and stands for  like:  Redeemer,  Creator,  Father,  Sustainer,  Fortress,  Rock,  Savior,  King,  Victory,  etc.

But let all  who take refuge  in You  be glad,
Let them ever sing  for joy;
And may You shelter them,
That those  who love Your name  may exult  in You.     Psalm 5:11

I will give thanks  to the LORD  according to His righteousness
And will sing praise  to the name  of the LORD Most High.     Psalm 7:17

And those  who know Your name  will put their trust  in You,
For You,  O LORD,  have not forsaken  those who seek You.     Psalm 9:10

Therefore  I will give thanks  to You  among the nations,  O LORD,
And I will sing praises  to Your name.     Psalm 18:49

Ascribe  to the LORD  the glory due  to His name;
Worship the LORD  in holy array.     Psalm 29:2

Sing praise  to the LORD,  you His godly ones,
And give thanks  to His holy name.     Psalm 30:4

Teach me Your way,  O LORD;
I will walk  in Your truth;
Unite my heart  to fear Your name.     Psalm 86:11

In Your name  they rejoice  all the day,
And by Your righteousness  they are exalted.     Psalm 89:16

But You,  O LORD,  abide forever,
And Your name  to all generations.     Psalm 102:12

Bless the LORD,  O my soul,
And all  that is within me,  bless His holy name    Psalm 103:1

Our help  is in the name  of the LORD,
Who made heaven  and earth.     Psalm 124:8

Praise the LORD,  for the LORD  is good;
Sing praises  to His name,  for it is lovely.     Psalm 135:3

Of course,  there is so much more.     In these verses,  we see  that we keep  God’s “name”  holy  by taking refuge in Him  —  singing  —  exulting  —  trusting  —  praising  —  being glad  —  worshiping  —  fearing,  which means respecting  —  remembering how God is eternal  and made us  —  thinking on how His “name”,  His whole being,  is lovely  and most desirable.

Since all of the above  is eternally true  —  and God does not change  —  what are we going  to do  about it?

In reverent faith,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  may Your name  always be holy  in our whole being.”

Love,
Margaret
