“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.” ~ Samuel Chadwick
“Prayer bathes the soul to an atmosphere of the Divine Presence.” ~ Charles Finney
“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. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 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.’ 14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” ~ Matthew 6:9-15
[My] Father in heaven, holy is your Name. God is MY Father. I am God’s son/daughter. God is the Owner of everything; I am not. God gives me holiness and goodness. I give my highest affection to God.
[May] Your Kingdom come [to me]; [May] Your will be done [in me] on earth as it is in heaven. FIRST request = The Kingdom to be present and experienced NOW and in heaven. Kingdom = Rule & reign of God. Kingdom = Relationship with Jesus. Kingdom = Healings of hearts and bodies. Kingdom = Power to change for the better.
Give us today our daily bread. God, may you provide all the money and resources I need. I trust you for that.
Forgive [me my] sins; the same way I forgive people who sin against me. Forgive me every sin I have done. Like You did, Jesus, I choose to forgive people who sin against me. I give up my right for justice to God. I trust You Jesus to deal with the person who hurt me. I give You the wounding; I receive Your healing.
For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. ~ Matthew 6:14-15
And lead [me] not into temptation, but deliver [me] from the evil one.
My Father in heaven; Holy is your Name. May your Kingdom come in me, as it is in heaven. Give me today everything I need: Food, shelter, money. Forgive me for my sins against You; I forgive everyone who has sinned against me. Lead me away from temptation; deliver me from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory. AMEN.
