Question: Do you do this; do you realize the importance of saying these particular words!?
as often with meaning and feeling as you possibly can
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven!.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil!. Amen
and do you also know the meaning and the importance of the wordsWww@QuestionHome@Com

yeah, sum people just repeat those words just because they memorized them!.!.!.but thats not the point of that!. that was the example jesus gave to the apostles to teach them how to pray!.!.!.but you dont neccisarily have to pray like that, as long as your praying with a sincere heart because that's what God wants!.!.!.not just a bunch of "fancy" words!. as long as you mean them =]Www@QuestionHome@Com

i'd like to think that you posted this in the wrong place!. as a catholic, i find some answers are outrageous even to you, don't you think!? (i value it to be sacred, no big deal please)

but to be fair, no real help is correct!. it is relative!. it is like a diamond or gold worn on the nose of people where some ancient tribes believes to expel bad spirits, demonstrate quality or status, etc!.!.!.!.
just like no real help, it means something else, or maybe more!. (no big deal)Www@QuestionHome@Com

I have no reason to believe either God or Jesus or the priest in the Church to be our Father!. I believe that less discerning Christians take the various symbolism in the religion so straight and neat as can be harmful!!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I do not!. I would feel like an ignorant savage if were to start praying to the invisible man in the sky!. What comes next!? Pray to Santa Claus!?
This is the philosophy forum, not the blind and bleating sheep forum!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The importance for who!? You!? Or me!?

I know what those particular words mean, but their level of importance is relative!.
