The first thing that Jesus

The first thing that Jesus tells us to ask God to do “mark this! The first thing. The head of the list. Above all others. Most central. Most supreme. Most overarching. Most all-encompassing”. The first thing he tells us to ask God to do is that God would cause his name to be hallowed. The first, and all-pervasive, all-influencing, all-controlling concern in prayer is to plead with God that God would make his name supremely valuable in the minds and hearts of people
