For what it’s worth, I made the above posting after having come from your Theologia site, and I was confused about which of the Brothers Horne is the Horne of Horne.org. (Thus, the mistaken “Pastor” salutation.)
I had just added Theologia to my favorites and will now do so with horne.org so I can keep up with what I hope will be a continuation of reflections of the Lord’s Prayer.
Your lining-up of the Lord’s Prayer with Israel’s history is upbuilding, insightful and thought-provoking. Thank you for posting your exploration!
Regarding the prayer for bread, have you ever thought of, noted or had pointed out to you a statement the Lord makes elsewhere that suggests some kind of link with the prayer for the Father’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven? That statement is John 4:34, after Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well. He tells his disciples, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”
Could one (metaphorical) level of the prayer for bread be Jesus’ inciting his followers to ask the Father to give them daily opportunities to do his will and advance his work?
