The Model Prayer

Luke 11:1 “Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord teach us to pray, as John also taught His disciples.”

Jesus’s disciples had observed Jesus and had come to believe that His prayers were always heard and answered. The disciples also believed that the continued source of His power came through secrete prayer. The disciples developed the desire to know how to pray, so they asked Jesus to teach them.

In this model prayer, God is acknowledged for both who He is, what He does and for His many attributes.

I encourage you to take some time, and find a quiet place where you can read this prayer out loud, and then be ready for God to do what you have prayed to Him.

Matthew 6:9  (NKJV)

In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father
Not only is God a Father, He is a Father to all

in heaven,
He has a Holy place of habitation

Hallowed be Your name.
His name is Holy

Your kingdom come.
He has a kingdom and He will rule and reign fully and completely both in Heaven and on earth

Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
He has a will for His people here on earth as it is being done in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread.
He gives and provides for His people

And forgive us our debts,
He forgives and sets an example to be followed

As we forgive our debtors.
we are to follow the example that God has set before us

And do not lead us into temptation,
He will not lead is people into trouble or harm’s way

But deliver us from the evil one.
He delivers and protects His people from the schemes, tricks or traps put before His people by the enemy

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
The true kingdom belongs to Him, and the power also belongs to Him. He gets the glory and it is everlasting

“In the name of Jesus we cast out all fear and any doubt, that our prayers are not heard, or will not be answered. O God, thank you hearing and answering prayer.”
