“Hallowed be your name” (Matthew 6:10).  

The word “hallow” means “to make or consider something holy.” Far from a celebration of ghosts and goblins on a ghoulish holiday called Halloween, “hallowed be your name” elevates our praying to our praiseworthy heavenly Father.

We praise or hallow God’s name because it reflects His good reputation. A study of the many names by which God reveals Himself in the Bible is worthwhile and transformative because by them we get to know God’s divine character, nature, and eternal purpose.

The Father gave His Son, Jesus, “the name that is above every name” (Philippians 2:9). When Jesus drops His name, every knee will bow in His presence and every tongue will confess that He is Lord.
