Tonight's sermon was about this prayer: The Lords Prayer.
I hadn't anticipated sharing my Lords Prayer story when the Pastor asked for examples of memorable prayer experiences with this prayer. But, the stoic Lutheran silence went a little too long for me and I stood and shared my story.
It was one of her last coherent days. The Hospice Nurse stood, and I sat on her bed. We prayed this prayer. I knew it was probably one of the last times she would say it. I knew before too long, I would be Motherless. I knew in that moment God was with us and she was not afraid.
