FOLLOW JESUS' GUIDANCE! Jesus gave us very few specific instructions about our relationship with God, such as He told us to ask in His “NAME” [Jn 16:26].  When He taught us to pray this prayer, we find that each word and phrase in the prayer is very powerful. People can use it as an outline and spend significant time praying each sentence. We start off saying nice things to God and then the personal requests cover our lives. Since we are encouraged by Jesus to pray it daily, never forget to pay attention to the actual words.  The following is a respectful translation of the prayer Jesus taught us: “YOU SHOULD PRAY LIKE THIS: OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN,  MAY YOUR HOLY NAME BE HONORED; MAY YOUR KINGDOM COME, MAY YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. PLEASE GIVE US THE FOOD WE NEED FOR EACH DAY. PLEASE FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE SINNED AGAINST US. PLEASE DON’T BRING US INTO TEMPTATION AND PLEASE RESCUE US FROM EVIL, FOR YOURS IS THE KINGDOM AND THE POWER AND THE GLORY FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN" [Mt 6:9-13 ET]. Do you obey Jesus and pray the prayer daily? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
