From “May It Be So: Forty Days with the Lord’s Prayer” by Justin McRoberts and Scott Erickson:

“‘This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.’ (Matthew 6:9-13)

Pause here to search your heart for assumptions about the world around you and those living in it. What do you expect from them? What do you expect from yourself? Do you expect good? Do you expect disappointment and frailty? How does that expectation influence the way you live?”
