The Lord’s Prayer

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy 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 is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13 KJV)


Have you ever wondered if your prayers are good enough?  Have you ever wondered if you were praying correctly?  The disciples thought the same thing.  They asked Jesus to teach them to pray.  We have two versions of the “Lord’s Prayer” in the Bible, Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4.  Words may be slightly different but they contain the same thought and outline.

  • Praise
  • Petition
  • Confession

Praise the Lord for the wonderful things He has done for you, for the prayers He has answered, for His love and guidance.  Lift up your petitions for your family, friends, and your needs.  Confess your sins.  Ask for the ability to forgive others.  Ask for the strength to resist temptation.  Ask for His presence to be with you today and the ability to see Him at work around you.  May your day shine a little bit better knowing that He is in control and the things of this earth will soon pass and you will see Him in all His glory.

Have a very blessed day!
