all glory and all power is yours
Our Father in Heaven
we worship You
we draw near
our Father, in heaven… help us to know you as Father…
When Jesus had finished praying, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his followers to pray.”
2So Jesus told them, “Pray in this way:
`Father, help us
to honor your name.
Come and set up
3Give us each day
the food we need.
4Forgive our sins,
as we forgive everyone
who has done wrong to us.
And keep us
from being tempted.’ “
when you read it, when you speak it, what Jesus prayed is really very simple, honest, real. It doesn sound overly spiritual, its not filled with repetition or flowerly language. Jesus SPEAKS to His Father. He prays. He communicates. He shares His hearts and His needs.
In the same way we should learn from Jesus – that prayer isnt about sounding spiritual or impressive – but its about connecting and communicating with our Father. prayer isnt about formula and catch phrases. its about conversation its about relationship and bringing honour and glory to His name, its about sharing our needs and our fears and our weaknesses with Him and worshiping Him.
what a privaledge it is that we can come and pray and seek God and call Him our Father – personal and near and close and loving. .
