When you pray—No. 4
Hallowed be Thy name
By Stanley M. Horton
How important it is to hold God’s name in reverence, to treat it as holy. “I will show the holiness of my great name … when I show myself holy” (Ezekiel 36:23) is a key verse that shows what this means. Here God’s name is identified with His Person and identifies His faithful character and nature as Redeemer, Restorer, and Giver of the Holy Spirit.
