The Lord’s Prayer is enveloped front and back with the idea of the sovereignty and omnipotence of a Father. “Our Father which art in Heaven. Hallowed be thy name…For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever”.

Philippians 4:6 addresses your speaking it out in prayer and supplication as a matter of honesty, dependence and partnership. Sometimes He waits for that obedience, and He does not want you to use awkward language that does not fit into who you are.
