The Lord's Prayer


Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7



   "And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, 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.

         For Yours is the kingdom and the

         Power and the glory forever.       Amen

                                                     Matthew 6:9-13


                             The Lord's Prayer

The Lord's Prayer is a prayer outline with seven major topics, each representing a basic human need:


The Paternal Need: Our Father  When you pray, all needs are met by the benevolence of a loving Father.


God's Presence: Hallowed be Your name  Enter His presence through praise and call Him 'Father' because of Christ's atoning blood.


God's Priorities: Your kingdom come  Declare that His kingdom priorities shall be established in yourself, your loved ones, your church and your nation.


God's Provision: Give us  Jesus, the needmeeter, told us to pray daily, asking Him to supply all our needs.


God's Forgiveness: And forgive us  You need God's forgiveness, and you need to forgive others. Daily set your will to walk in love and forgiveness.


Power Over Satan: And do not lead us...deliver us from the evil one  Pray a hedge of protection about yourself and you loved ones, and verbally put on the Armor of God


Divine Partnership: For Yours is the kingdom  Praise God for sharing His kingdom, power, and glory with you.

  We pray, O Father, that in the hours when we find ourselves in the dungeons of doubt, that you will hear our questions. Forgive us for demanding that you answer our questions as we want them answered. Decrease our doubt and increase our faith.


Billy Graham on PrayerThe Bible says, Pray without ceasing! This means that we must be always ready to pray. Prayer is like a child's communion with a father. Because the Christian is one who has been born into the family of God, it is as natural to pray as it is for an earthly child to ask his or her father for the things he or she needs. We are living in dangerous times; and if there was ever a time when we needed to pray, it's now. Because more can be done by prayer than anything else! Prayer is our greatest weapon!


                               Prayer Strategies


Prayer is for God's children. God does not hear the prayers of sinners.


Effectual prayer is offered in faith. Believe what you pray.


Dynamic, fervent prayer emanates from an obedient heart. Obey God's rules.


Pray in Jesus Christ's name. Christ is our Savior and intercessory to God.


Desire the will of God. Pray that God's will be done, not yours.


Pray for God's glory. We must give God the glory for everything.



                  Prayer from The Holy Bible

The Bible actually reveals our ignorance in prayer:                                                                 We do not know what we should prayer for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered  Romans 8:26                            When you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words  Matthew 6:7


The Bible invites us, actually commands us, to pray:                                                           In everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6                                                                                                            Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16


The Bible offers many guidelines for praying:                                                                     But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. Matthew 6:6                                                                                                                                        If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. John 15:7                                                                                                               And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
