    In Ortholandia, we typically pray the Lord’s Prayer before every meal. It is also prayed during morning and evening prayers so there’s the possibility that some folks pray this prayer at least five times each day.

    Here’s what it sounds like at a typical Russian parish (We sing it a little faster in my parish.)

    At my old Greek parish we didn’t sing it, we recited it.

    Josh,
    I’m going to try. There’s a lot to do first, though.

    Thanks Jean – I have some catching up to do, been away from my computer for awhile…

    ““[T]here is the time-honoured method of making the Lord’s Prayer the framework for regular daily praying. Take each clause at a time, and, while holding each in turn in the back of your mind, call into the front of your mind the particular things you want to pray for, as it were, under that heading.” (N.T. Wright)”

    This summary is perfect – fits the whole study with shoe leather for the walk. Very helpful practically.
