Lenten Prayer #27: For God to be Honored Among All Peoples

Malachi 1:11
"My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the LORD Almighty.

Matthew 6:9
...Our Father in Heaven, holy is Your name...

God, you are worthy to be known and worshipped everywhere!  Even now, people on the other side of the world are praising you.  Still, we know that there are many people on the other side of our towns, cities, streets...who have yet to see you or know you as you truly are.  We ourselves only know a part of your love and goodness. Reveal your greatness!  May our communities speak of you with reverence and awe.  May the fame of your name be great.  May your name be sanctified, set apart from every other name, every god, every philosophy.  May the story of what you have done establish your love in our communities and throughout the world.  Amen
