New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Lord's Prayer is Christ's gift to us and all God's children at Baptism as an essential part of our equipment for spiritual combat.  That's how it has been used since the apostolic age; we learn from the Didache, an ancient Christian manual for spirituality, that as early as the end of the first century A.D. all Christians were instructed pray the Lord's Prayer as their daily prayer.  It equips us for the daily combat together with Christ and His whole church.  -- Dr. John Kleinig, Grace upon Grace, p. 256.
