Prayer Knowing how to pray, of course, means understanding what Biblical prayer is. Prayer is making petitions to God, expecting to receive what is asked. As also shown, there are several Greek words that are translated with the word "prayer" or related words like "intercession" and "supplication". Each of these words, if examined in the contexts in which they occur, can be clearly seen to be about making petitions; each word referring to a different kind of petition. One of the most important promises concerning prayer in the entire Bible is found in I John 5:14 & 15: "Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. "And we know that if He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him."
When you pray, mean it! Don't mindlessly recite any prayer! Never just read a prayer off a sheet of paper unless you are using your mind to make it really your prayer. Otherwise, in God's sight, you are just running your mouth and that happens to be sin. You should never even recite the Lord's Prayer mindlessly, as so many Christians do all the time. The Lords prayer: Our Father in heaven, Recognize that God is above us. We are on earth and he is in heaven, with a heavenly perspective. Recognize that we are praying to an external, real person, not to ourselves, nor to an earthly father. hallowed be your name, Open our prayers with praise to God just for being God. Recognize that he is a holy God, due respect and honor. Express the hope that he will be reverenced by all. your kingdom come, Our first petition is that God's plan for the universe will be established and that all things will work toward the advancement of his kingdom. Put the global view first. your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. When we begin to ask for our own needs, we must remember to defer all specifics and outcomes to God's will, for he alone can see around corners. We don't want to be caught up in ourselves and our needs so much that we ask something contrary to God's will or plan for us and for others. Our focus should be on God, the creator and ruler of both heaven and earth.
Give us today our daily bread. This petition reminds us to be thankful for the blessings we often take for granted, like our food, hot water, aspirin, clean towels, indoor plumbing. Seen rightly, the minute by minute sustenance God gives us amounts to more than many great but singular blessings we sometimes desire so ardently. This request reminds us not to allow the blessings of our lives to go unnoticed just because they are common. On another level, this petition is a request for daily spiritual nourishment--the daily bread of life that we need to continue our sojourn here. Forgive us our debts, Even after we are saved we are creatures of sin and error, in need of forgiveness, and of recognition that we continue to need forgiveness. Salvation does not eradicate pride in everyone, or selfishness. The saved believer enters into a process of personal amendment that may take a lifetime. as we also have forgiven our debtors. Moses permitted divorce, Jesus tells us, because the Israelites' hearts were hard. Our hearts are hard, too, and we need to be reminded that we must forgive those who offend us. In fact, this petition is the only one in the prayer that Jesus commented on to make clearer to the disciples: "For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." --Matthew 6:14-15 And lead us not into temptation, "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak," Jesus tells us in Matthew 26:41. This petition reminds us to pray for the desire to walk uprightly. It is an indirect and perhaps euphemistic reminder that we should not lead ourselves into temptation, which is the most common case. but deliver us from the evil one. The prayer closes with a request for protection from Satan and his devices. Deliverance is accomplished by our focusing on the source of deliverance, God himself, the very God in heaven whom we are addressing and who alone can keep us safe. Once again, we are reminded that we cannot rely on our own selves or our own devices. --Matthew 6:9-13 (NIV)
