Matthew 6: “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Matthew 6: Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
“It is a good thing to let prayer be the first business of the morning and the last at night.” “Guard yourself against those deluding ideas which tell you, ‘Wait a little while. I will pray in an hour; first I must attend to this or that.’”
Are you paying attention in prayer? Some good advice: Pray “through the whole [Lord’s] Prayer, word for word” “Then repeat one part or as much as you wish” “You should also know that I do not want you to recite all these words in your prayer.”
A Name and Kingdom built on grace and forgiveness Hallow = to make holy, to honor as holy “Convert them and defend us.” “Grant forgiveness also to those who have harmed or wronged us, as we forgive them from our hearts. They inflict the greatest injury upon themselves by arousing thy anger in their actions toward us. We are not helped by their ruin; we would much rather that they be saved with us.”
