Saint Augustine wrote some of the most insightful and helpful advice concerning prayer, specifically the Lord's Prayer. It's easy for Christians, and all people, to be so familiar with it that they fail to feel its meaning anymore, so I thought I would publish some of Augustine's advice in a series on prayer.
"...when we say 'Hallowed be your name', we are reminding ourselves to desire that his name, which in fact is always holy, should also be considered holy among men. I mean that it should not be held in contempt. But this is a help for men, not for God."
