Praying the Savior's Way

Praying the Savior's Way

Praying for God’s Will and Provision

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven God’s sovereign will, His ultimate plan, will always prevail, but His moral will can be rejected. This petition calls us to obedience and conformity to God’s will, similar to the swift, faithful, joyful obedience of the angels. Give us this day our daily bread. This is a petition that acknowledges our dependance upon God.…

Praying about God’s Name and Kingdom

The infinitely glorious God of the universe, through grace, allows us to be His adopted children who may address Him intimately as “Father.” We hallow God’s name when we honor Him as the holy one revealed in the Scriptures. His kingdom comes not only in the future at Christ’s return, but now as God rules over creation, history, and in the hearts of those He redeems.

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

The disciples asked, “Lord, teach us to pray” because they knew that Jesus valued prayer in every aspect of His life. The Lord’s Prayer (Luke 11) is still valuable today and can shape, inform, and inspire our communion with God and our intercession with Him. It is a pattern for our prayer, a prayer we can offer in Jesus’ name, and a prayer for a God-focused life.
