Prayer and Morality in the Sermon on the Mount

Studies in Christian Ethics 22 (1):21-33 (2009)

The Lord's Prayer is at the centre of the Sermon on the Mount in a section on restraint in religious performance. The flanking sections treat of the opposition of lower and higher law, and of simplicity of agency, themes reflected in the central section in the opposition of public and secret. The Lord's Prayer inducts the worshipper into the elementary relations of the universe: the Father, the source of intelligible governance of the universe; the community of human beings created to live and act within the world; the temptation which is the final test of the enterprise of human living
