Thought for the Day II

"I want you to notice with me six kinds of prayer that take place in this perfect prayer (The Lord's Prayer).

Intimate prayer - Our Father, who art in heaven

Praising prayer - Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Thanksgiving prayer - Give us this day our daily bread.

Confessing prayer - And forgive us our debts,

Intercessory prayer - as we forgive our debtors.

Petitioning prayer - And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

And again praising prayer - "For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."
