The Key-note Of Prayer And Praise

"When ye pray, say, Our Father, &c." S. Luke xi. 2.

We can now understand why the Lord's Prayer is used twice in the same

Service. The Praises begin with it and the Prayers begin with it. The

setting of {17} the Lord's Prayer will always proclaim what kind of

Service is beginning[1]. Thus the Lord's Prayer is made to strike the

key-note of the Service, or part of a Service, to which it is prefixed.
