Have you ever considered what is commonly called the Lord’s Prayer? In the Good News recorded by Matthew, Jesus says this is how we should pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.*
Our Father in heaven. Do you realize this is a faith statement? God is not made of wood, stone or metal sitting on your mantel or bedside table. God is living, active and ruling the universe from his kingdom in heaven. Every time we pray this prayer we are recognizing who our God is and that we are his creation, looking up to him for all we need.
Would you consider placing your life into the hands of your Dad in heaven?
