When You Do Not Know What to Pray

Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“ ‘Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

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 lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from the evil one.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Matthew 6:8-15 NIV

This is how Jesus taught us.  We have done many things with it: some good, some bad, some benign. 

Do not repeat it in a rote fashion, as you may or may not have learned in church….it is DEEP, it is MEANINGFUL, be filled with the Power of the Holy Spirit and then you will know the will of God (Romans 12:1-2).

Take each line C A R E F U L L Y, speak them back to God and meditate on His Words.  There is power in the Words of God. There is Truth.

I am praying for a serious situation happening in four minutes. I will begin again with the Lord’s prayer, there is power in His prayer.
