Day 2 of Prayer Share is here! I know, it took more than a day but hey, it’s here and that’s all that matters now. LOL
I’m giving Prayer every week for a month to allow us time to think about the challenges offered.
Today let’s look at the model prayer that we are given in the Bible. The Lord’s Prayer is given an example of how prayer should flow from your lips/thoughts to our God. Matthew writes in Matthew 6:9-13 (King James Version)
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
I love, love, love The Lord’s Prayer as it is the best go to prayer when you may be at a loss for words and nothing easily comes to mind.
In The Lord’s Prayer,
We give Honor and Respect: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
We ask for direction and guidance: Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
We ask for provision of our needs: Give us this day our daily bread.
We ask for forgiveness and pledge to be forgiving of others: And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
We praise: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen
