Daily Prayer

Prayer, of course, is such an awesome privilege!  It is after all, talking with God! 

What a super-human experience!  God made man, and with the first man, He had regular talks, walks, and fellowship. (Genesis 3:8) The same He wishes to do with each of us!

In the Bible, there are many different types of prayer. We are encouraged to pray constantly and to utilize all of the different kinds of prayer. 

Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people). Ephesians 6:18 (AMP)


In Matthew 6:9-13 we find what has been termed, "The Lord's Prayer".

Here we find a prayer that Jesus taught His disciples to pray on a daily basis ("...give us this day..." v.11).

It is not necessarily a prayer to be simply repeated verbatim.  Rather, it is an outline to guide us in a very effective and efficient DAILY prayer.

"After this manner therefore pray ye..." (Matthew 6:9). 

Jesus is the Master... at everything.   He is the Master of faith and prayer.   In this role, Jesus created, if you will, a prayer that we could all pray every single day.

And though it does not take long to pray (it can be prayed in a very short amount of time, but it can also engage one in a lengthy time of prayer) it is fashioned in a way that will bring one into the very presence of God, help establish a fresh standing and relationship with God, while at the same time guide one to the obtaining of all of life's needs for the day, be they physical or spiritual!

"Jesus: Oh What a Wonder You Are"!


Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven,              Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
Amen.
