Wednesday October 11th: How we should pray

“Lord, teach us to pray…”

Luke 11: 1 – 4

 Jesus’ disciples observed His lifestyle of prayer and recognised its inherent power. As a consequence, they asked Him to teach them to pray and Jesus taught them the prayer we have come to know as “The Lord’s Prayer”

The ‘Our Father’ is not only a prayer, but also a model or a pattern for how we should pray.  Here is the model:

  • Always put God’s Holy Name first.
  • Always pray for others, not just for ourselves and our loved ones.
  • Pray to the Father, the Source of all holiness, through His Son Jesus, in communion with the Holy Spirit.
  • Pray with reverence and sincerity.
  • Pray that ONLY God’s Will be done in and through us.
  • Be thankful for all that God has given to us.
  • Pray for a heart of forgiveness.
  • Pray for the grace to always overcome temptation.
  • Pray that we may always resist satan’s call to evil.

ALL Power and Glory belong to God alone!
