Martin Luther referred to The Lord's Prayer as "the greatest martyr on earth," because it was used so frequently without thought or feeling, without reverence or faith. The Church in the early twenty-first century seems fascinated by and preoccupied with the latest fads and fancies. By contrast the apostles were committed to the ministry of reminder, rather than the mechanics of innovation. We are in danger of neglecting the important role tradition plays in the forming and framing of healthy Christian living. By focusing on these familiar words, we receive a refresher course on Christian belief and behavior. C. S. Lewis warned his readers of the danger of sliding away from "the faith once given" into a phantom called "my religion". The Lord's Prayer provides rails to ensure that the train stays on the track.
