Jesus Tell Us How To Pray
In Matthew 6, as the disciples walked with Jesus and were taught, they hungered for His words and clung to them. So Jesus taught them how to go about prayer and the words that He told them to say to their Father in Heaven.
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from the evil one.
It is simple you see, you don’t need lengthy prayers, God knows your heart and needs, Jesus hears when you come to Him simply He knows all the rest. But you must come and lay it down for Him at the throne and let the guidance of the Holy Spirit direct the way.
