The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. AMEN.
Prayer is Holy Conversation between God and us. Holy doesn’t mean fancy or big words. Madeline L’Engle said, “Prayer is love and love is never wasted”. Our conversations with God can be spoken, silence, thoughts, or just being still. Jesus showed us by example that we need to take time for prayer on a regular bases. He would leave the disciples and crowds to go away to pray. When the disciples wanted to pray like Jesus, they ask hime to teach them to pray. Jesus taught them The Lord’s Prayer.
Following the example of The Lord’s Prayer when we pray in our own words we have a pattern to follow: Begin with praise, thanksgiving, and acknowledging who and what God has done. – Pray for the need of others and our world – Remember your own need for grace and love. – Seek God’s guidance in your life. – Stop and listen. – Conclude with trusting God’s Word and promises.
