“Not ‘My Father,’ but ‘Our Father'” by Martin Luther

“Let no one among us be selfish or forget others in Your presence. Having discarded all hatred, envy, and discord, let us love one another as true and devout children of God, that united we may say, not ‘My Father,’ but ‘Our Father.’ Amen.”

–Martin Luther, Luther’s Prayers, Ed. Herbert Brokering (Minneapolis: Augsburg, 1994), no. 40, p. 27.
