Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, Lord teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. So He said to them, when you pray, say: ”Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one – Luke 11 : 1 – 4.
His disciples went to Him although they have been with Him, but they knew that they still need Him to show them how to pray effective prayer. Not just a prayer that some of us think we are praying today. There are ways you can pray that your prayer can be answered. Don’t allow your prayer to become noise without any form of force but rather let it be effective. That is why Thelma Wells said that, ”The Lord’s prayer is a faith declaration. It has everything we need to walk into the throne room of God’s presence”.
We should go to Him and ask Him to show us the words we are to use in our prayer so that our prayer we be answered not trying to do it in our own way or with our intelligence or little understanding because He want us to come to Him for everything.
Father, I thank You for showing us how to pray but Lord, we still need Your understanding and knowledge of the words to use in our different prayers, So Lord, reveal to us the words we should always use so that our prayer will be effective to glorify Your name and not making noise in Jesus name.
