Jesus teaches His disciples to pray.
If we want to live and love like Jesus, then we have to cultivate a fervent love for Him through a lifestyle of worship. A key component of that is prayer.
So when we pray, we pray to…the Father who loves us perfectly.
We pray for…His honor, His fame.
We pray for…His kingdom to come, Jesus to return, the end of sin and righteousness to reign.
We pray for…our daily needs, both for ourselves and for other believers.
We pray for…forgiveness, both for ourselves and for the ability to forgive others.
We pray for…strength to persevere in trials and resist temptations that would take us away from our Father.
We pray…boldly, persistently, and expectantly, trusting that God is a good, good Father who delights to give us good gifts to His children.
“Father, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, For we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.”
Until next time…stay salty.
“May we believe that God is a good Father and that we are loved by Him.”
