Be centered ...

"Pray then like this: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.'" - Matthew 6:9
Some time ago we hung a picture on our living room wall. I took great care to center this beauty from the right and left as well as from top to bottom. If this piece of framed art was off by the least little bit everything around it would be affected. Life is very much the same way; if you're off center everything else is going to be wrong.
The Lord taught us to follow a certain pattern in prayer and life. He gave us the key to having a well centered prayer experience and daily lifestyle. That key is found in these words, "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name." If we are centered on hallowing God's name in prayer and life, everything around you will be affected for the good. 
Someone has once said, "Love God with all your heart and then do whatever you please". They suggested that in so doing you would never go astray. In the same spirit, when you determine every day to keep the Lord's Name Holy in your all your requests and actions, your life will be centered my friend; and everything around you will be centered as well.
