Question 100


Q: What doth the preface of the Lord's prayer teach us?
A: The preface of the Lord's prayer which is, Our Father which art in heaven, teacheth us to draw near to God with all holy reverence and confidence, as children to a father, able and ready to help us;1 and that we should pray with and for others.2
