Day 15 | Jesus’ Model of Prayer

13/05/2019

The Lord’s Prayer is the most famous prayer in the world. It is one of the greatest gifts Jesus gave us. It is not a magic spell or incantation. It’s not meant to be prayed as a mindless ritual. Instead, the Lord’s Prayer is a pattern for prayer that addresses everything you need in life. It’s a ten-step pathway, and each step leads you to a deeper relationship with God. Pray it slowly, phrase by phrase, and let Jesus speak to your heart.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

MATTHEW 6:9–13

REFLECT

What did you hear?
What did God say to you as you read today’s Bible passage? What word or phrase was most meaningful to you?

What do you think?
What does this passage mean to you? How does it apply to your life?

What is your prayer?
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. But take a minute to write a prayer of response to God.
