It’s been a challenging few months since my mother’s passing and the LORD JESUS CHRIST has been with me each day. I knew a few weeks ago that my next blog should be on prayer. It was very clear that morning. I believe that so many people want to pray but do not know how to begin. Jesus gave the example in Matthew 6:9-13 .
Our Father Who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done in Earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For Thine s the kingdom, and the power and the glory, for ever Amen.
When I was in the 8th grade at Vance Middle School we had prayer and said the pledge to the American flag with our hand over our heart. My homeroom teacher was Mr. Garland and he lead our class in the Lord’s Prayer every morning. Someone mentioned that he had quit teaching after that year. I’m not really sure if he taught only a year but I wish I could let Mr. Garland know how much that meant to me. Although I had attended church all my life, it was saying this prayer every morning in homeroom that helped me memorize it. Thank you Lord for such a wonderful teacher!!
It may feel strange but get the Bible out and read the Lord’s Prayer out loud. God is waiting to hear from us! Read the Bible and learn how much God loves you! I’ll also be praying for you.
Pearl For Thought: Jesus prayed often and He gave us the example to go by. Let us start out by giving God praise, asking for His Will , Thanking Him for our blessings , Forgiving us (we also need to forgive others), asking Him to help us with temptations & keeping evil from us, For the Kingdom , all power & glory belongs to God!
