Grade 3-4 2nd Commandment – You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God.

Assign on May 14, 2017 & Recite on May 21, 2017

Grade 5-8 Psalm 50:15 – Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you will honor Me.
Grade 5-8 Matthew 10:32-33 – Whoever confesses Me before men, him will I confess before My Father in heaven. Whoever denies Me before men I will deny him before My Father in heaven.
Grade 5-8 1st Petition – Hallowed be Thy name.

What does this mean?
God’s name is certainly holy by itself, but we pray in this petition that we too may keep it holy.

How is God’s name kept holy?
God’s name is kept holy when his Word is taught in its truth and purity, and we as children of God lead holy lives according to it. Help us to do this, dear Father in heaven! But whoever teaches and lives contrary to God’s Word dishonors God’s name among us. Keep us from doing this, dear Father in heaven!
