Friend, as you may know, from our recent post, prayer is the way you can communicate with God!
Similar in talking with your loved ones, prayer is vital in order for your relationship to grow stronger with God.
When you incorporate prayer regularly, you will grow stronger spiritually and hear from your Heavenly Father, the creator of this universe!
In Matthew 6:9-13 Jesus, God’s son, encourages us by giving a model on how we can pray.
Matthew 6:9-13 CSB reads, “Therefore, you should pray like this: Our Father in heaven, your name be honored as holy. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
Now, let's break this down:
“Therefore, you should pray like this:
Our Father in heaven, your name be honored as holy.
This scripture starts off by sharing what you are about to read is a suggestion on how to pray! Meaning, this passage is a guide on which you can use to pray. Then, the passage moves forward into gratitude. Sharing what you are grateful for is always important to state first when you begin prayer.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
The guide moves forward stating God whatever your will is let it be done! In other words, you can move forward in prayer stating, "God I trust your plan to be done in my life."😃
Give us today our daily bread.
Next, the model prayer gives a suggestion to also include on inviting God into your needs.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
Then, you will notice how the model suggests to take a moment to ask for forgiveness. Notice it also encourages for you to forgive others as well which is just as important!
And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
Finally, the prayer closes with an request to God for protection and guidance in all things!
Now, check out the below simple prayer inspired by the above verses, for you to use the next time you start your day!
God, you are amazing! You are greater than anything including any situation I may face today. I ask you to give me all I need to succeed in life! I know I have made mistakes. I ask for your forgiveness and support to help me forgive others who may have hurt me. I will trust you and follow you! I know you are protecting me from all things and leading me towards good paths, in Jesus name, amen!
