Prayer? communicating with God.
Why pray? communicating with God, our Father, through the name of Jesus, using scripture, is THE most powerful tool we have against the satan.
Should I pray? yes.
How? by simply speaking your heart to God. Simply communicating to Him desires, fears, hopes, needs, passions, for you and for others. Prayer isn’t just a time for us to dump on God, but a time to be intimate with Him, a moment to be open, honest, and transparent…after all, He already knows.
Is there a guide for prayer?-Matthew 6:7-13
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.
Can you pray with me? sure!
Father, in the name of Jesus. Today was a good day. Even if it wasn’t, we still proclaim that it WAS a good day, because you made it! Lord, we are soooo thankful for your son Jesus, that came to earth to teach us more about you, and to die for our sins. Because of that, we are saved from the death of sin! We are set free! Never to die the death of sin. Father, we pray blessings over our neighbors, our friends, our enemies, our government, our family, and ourselves. We open our hearts to be the people you want us to be. We trust your plan, your direction for our life. We aren’t smart enough,or brave enough, to do anything on our own. We invite you to take a permanent place in our lives. For we know without you, we WILL NOT survive. Thank you for being who you are. We love you, honor you, and magnify your name.
