This prayer is arguably the most memorized passage of scripture in the entire Bible. So many people grew up reciting this prayer corporately each Sunday at their church. This prayer has been such a foundational teaching in the Christian church that just about anyone associated with any sect of our faith could quote it with precision. It's a short and simple prayer that even my 8-year-old knows from heart. However, the meaning that's packed into this little prayer has captivated God's children for more than two millennium.
