"Therefore thus shall ye pray: Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we have forgiven our debtors. And let us not fall into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen."

Matthew 6:9-13

THOUGHT: This prayer that Jesus taught His disciples is an example, a model of what our prayers should be. It begins with worship and praise to God the Father. Seeks to fulfill His promises for our daily life and forgiveness of our sins, seeking the strength and victory of the Lord. In closing, he gives honor and glory to the Governor of the Universe, the Redeemer of humanity. Model prayer begins with the assurance that God is our Father, and this motivates us to glorify Him. Jesus practiced prayer regularly and often, and taught us to pray too. His great goal has always been to bring people back to God through redemption and adoption as children. The Lord's Prayer contains seven petitions for spiritual blessings and only one request for material needs. We always need to remember this. The Lord's Prayer reveals Jesus Christ. Certainly in Him are all the words of this prayer centered. What are the first words? Our Father, who are in heaven. It was on the cross that these words were made possible, and shortly after the resurrection Jesus said, "I ascend to my Father, and your Father, to my God and your God." John 20:17. The Savior died for us.

Prayer: Lord, I want to be like little children so that I can reach your blessings. Make us worthy of mercy, for we need and are dependent on you. I want to ask you, my God, don't let us lack: faith, hope, long-suffering and trust, because we want to reach the heaven of glory, which you prepared for us. God I ask for this day, peace and grace to win the fights. I thank you God, because You are my God! You are worthy of praise and honor forever and ever!!! I know you will not forsake us !!! I believe in this prayer. I believe in you. I want to thank you, because I don't deserve so much love. But You loved me first and we thank you for this incomparable love. Love you Jesus! May your Holy Spirit remain in me! In the name of Jesus. Amen.
