Christ's disciples in the brief three years
they shared with him sought answers to the myriad matters that
There is an old saying containing much truth. "Familiarity breeds contempt". Listen to the Speaker in our House of Representatives gabble through the Lord's Prayer to start the day's proceedings in Parliament. Something precious has been immeasurably devalued, to be hastily dispensed with so that the important business can proceed.
So often that business is the opposite to the petition in the Lord's Prayer.
One can well imagine that Christ prayed this prayer long before He gave it to his disciples.
For Him it had deep personal meaning amounting to absolute necessity.
Our Father in heaven, I hallow Your Name above all other names. I pray for the material and spiritual bread You offer Your children to sustain life in all its abundance. Keep me free from temptation, and defeat the forces of evil, that Your Kingdom may be established on earth as it is in heaven. For in You, and You alone, resides that power. Amen"
Have we become so familiar with
the Lord's Prayer that we are victims of contempt?
For myself after 21 years familiarity

ask Thy blessing on the work of the League,
The League has been sustained through many years of trial. The prayer has been answered and will continue to be answered even more fully as Social Crediters increase in faith to ask for even greater advances in Social Credit Christianity.
The Editor of the New Times Survey
has issued a challenge. In response, this Social Crediter now meets
weekly with two fellow Christians in his Church who responded to
his request for support in the prayer,
Neither has attended a League meeting.
We pray for all those ordained in
the Name of Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
We can confidently wait on the day when all Christian leaders from the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury down, all their fellow bishops, priests, pastors and elders will teach that truth, and the vision of Douglas and all Christians will be fulfilled.
"And they shall sit, every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid".
