“God is our Father”
Praying the Lord’s Prayer, we must first experience God as our Father with whom we can trust and abandon ourselves totally in His presence. If not, we will simply recite this prayer without knowing the Person whom we are addressing it to.
When we relate with God as someone close to us, we will freely ask God our loving Father for the desires of our hearts. We ask with persistence but also with the heart that trust that He will give us the best that we need in His time and His ways.

“The darnel and wheat”
Today, Jesus calls us to be patient and not to be too quick to exclude the ‘darnels’ we see. Look at Jesus’ life, He never excluded the ‘darnels’, the Pharisees and the rest of the religious leaders.
