Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be your name

After this manner therefore pray: Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be your name… Matthew 6:9

Hallowed

G37
ἁγιάζω
hagiazō
hag-ee-ad’-zo
From G40; to make holy, that is, (ceremonially) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate: – hallow, be holy, sanctify.

May your name be hallowed, today.

In what ways is the Father’s name hallowed in your life today?

Our LORD Jesus showed us how to hallow His name. The only Man to ever FULLY hallow the Father’s name.

But sanctify the LORD God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good behavior in Christ. 1 Peter 3:15-16

Sanctify the LORD God in your hearts… Sanctify is the same word as hallowed: Hagiazo.

So, May your name be sanctified, today. What does this mean? It means separated, a distinction, a recognition and a placing in order. When the Father’s name is sanctified by me, then i live for Him and can distinguish what is of Him and what isn’t, and order my life accordingly.
