31 days of powerful prayer. Day 8: the Lord's prayer:Pray specifically!

, , No Comments
In Lord's prayer Jesus taught the disciples and also us a pattern for a prayer.
Yet He didn't mean that we would use meaningless repetition, but the Lord's prayer
gives us indications to pray specifically.

Our Father in heaven...
The prayer begins with the goodness of God.
He is our heavenly Father...Abba. And you are His loving child. 
So when you pray remember this:He is my father and I am his child.

who is in heaven... 
This reminds us that God is omnipotent, almighty, sovereign.
And He is bigger than any your problem!

hallowed be your name... 
Worship God for who He is...don't just present a huge list of things you would like him to do for you. 

your kingdom come,your will be done on earth as it is in heaven... 
Submit your will to God. 
Pastor Bill Johnson explains this very well: 

"The will of God is simply this: “On earth as it is in Heaven.” Isn’t it refreshing? When we pray, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done,” we’re praying for the King’s dominion and will to be realized right here, right now. That is a life-transforming, paradigm-shattering way to “do” normal Christianity. What is free to operate in Heaven – Joy, peace, wisdom, health, wholeness, and all the other good promises we read about in the Bible – Should be free to operate here on this planet, in your home, your church, your business, and your school. What is not free to operate there – sickness, disease, spiritual bondage, and sin – should not be free to operate here, period. We are out to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). It’s an awesome way to live!
When we make this our primary understanding of God’s will, the other areas that trouble us so much will seem to sort themselves out (Matt. 6:33)."

give us this day our daily bread... 
God knows all of our needs but yet in Philippians 4:6 it's written:Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.So ask!

forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors...
Remember always to confess your sins but also remember to receive forgiveness.This is very important...so don't let unforgiveness to be an obstacle in your life.

lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil...
Pray victory over temptation and protection from evil.

for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever...
Worship God,give Him all the glory and honor
and thank Him that you can talk to Him through prayer.   

A M E N.

So use the Lord's prayer as a model to your prayers:
it has the variety of elements that should be included in
our prayers.
