Hallowed: used of the name of the Father of Lights. First petition in the Lord's prayer - revered or counted holy. It is a prayer that unworthy conceptions of God and of His character may no longer prevail among men (Godet). The child of the day beseeches Him to manifest with effect His holy character, in the conscience of men so that we can unite with the seraphim in the anthem of adoration "Holy, Holy, Holy".
