Pray Like This
Posted: May 23, 2016
Have you ever sat down to pray and wondered where to start? With so many thoughts swirling in our minds each day, it’s not always easy to know what to pray. Thankfully when we’re overwhelmed or at a loss for words, Jesus gives us a model of how to pray:
"Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.”
- Matthew 6:9-13 NLT
Lord Jesus, thank you for teaching us how to pray. Help me to meditate on this prayer and understand it’s power and truth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
