Thought for the Day II

"God reveals what we are able to do and God reveals what He alone can do to bring about the desired results of our prayers. There simply is no spiritual life where there is no prayer life. A seeking heart, with intentions to serve God through faith, can, through prayer, taste of the heavenly gift, and be partakers of the Holy Spirit. Through prayer you can; subdue kingdoms, bring about righteousness, obtain promises, see the mighty works of God, obtain mercy, move mountains, and please God.

There has been a lot said about prayer, but I want to take a look at what the Master of prayer, Jesus Himself, says about prayer. Matthew 6:9, the Lord’s prayer. Here we have the Lord's prayer. This prayer is the model prayer for mankind. Even though many people today think that they know a better way, I am convinced that Jesus designed for us a model of prayer that honors God and brings the answers and results we are looking for in our life.

Matthew 6:9-13
"After this manner, therefore, pray ye:
Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name.
V10 "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
V11 Give us this day our daily bread.
V12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
V13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
