Prayer - The Lord's PrayerWhen was the last time you said a prayer?  Not sure where to start.  Jesus gives us the perfect example below known as the Lord’s prayer.

The Lord’s Prayer

“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.”  Matthew 6:9b-13

“You do not have because you do not ask God.  When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.”  James 4:2b-3

“And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”  John 14:13-14

Why Prayer?

Why do we pray?  Deep down we long for a relationship with Jesus and when we pray we feel a closeness to him.  We pray for wisdom in decisions and also for strength to get us through life challenges.  See what the Bible tells us about Strength.
