PRAYER Rx --- May 1
Lord Jesus, how shall we pray?
"Pray to your Father in heaven in this way: 'Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.'" (Matthew 6:9)
We are to reverence His holy name, for He is a sovereign God -- Creator and Overseer of the universe, my world, and my life!
"'Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.'" (Verse 10)
If we seek to know Him and His will through His Word and the promptings of the Holy Spirit, and if we are obedient to His commands, then He will help us to fulfill our greatest potential, and we in turn will be filled with His great joy, and will experience His "kingdom on earth"!
"'Give us this day our daily bread.'" (Verse 11)
Help us to learn to trust You for our needs -- not our wants -- and then to recognize Your surprise blessings as You provide them, remembering always to thank You for them.
In Your holy name we pray.
