Our grandfather (They claim Christ is Father, Jah is grandfather..based on misinterpretation of Isaiah 9:6) who art somewhere in heaven (Jah has a location and a spirit body and lives somewhere, used to be in Pliedes but now they have lost his address) mispronounced be thy name (Insight book admits its a mispronoun).
Thy 144000+1 come, their will be done (self explanitory) On earth as they hover in Heaven. (the kingdom is not a location, they, 144000, hover above the earth)
Technically speaking, JW's should close all their prayers with "we ask these things in the name of the Governing Body" instead of "we ask these things in the name of Jesus" because acording to JW doctrine no one can gain salvation unless one obeys, without question, all the teachings of these men. Faith in Jesus alone is not enough to approach god.
Yep Robdar, they teach Jah is grandfather, I think its in the Prince of Peace book, or the United In Worship book, cant remember, I just remember being in book study when it was studied and how everyone thought "wow" this deep understanding just shows how we are in the truth...!!!!!
You are right Beel, it would be more appropriate to end their prayers that way.
O Harry, it is Saturday, and most of us have the day off, which means that we will be checking items off our List for Saturdays, including running errands, and doing work around the house, and buying things, and trying to satisfy our personal desires, and screaming at our children, if they aren't at the mall, and we ask you to wish us luck as we try to get through the day without thinking about anything at all.
Taken from the Boomer Bible. Which is a great book, btw:
Much like the Yearbook text, we have a different prayer for each week day:
A Platitude for Sundays
O Harry, it is Sunday and tomorrow we will have to go to work again, and we do not wish to think about it at all, and so we are ready to run and run and run all day, and maybe there will be something good on TV, but even so, please wish us luck in not thinking about anything at all today.
