Praying with Jesus

Jesus taught us how to pray, saying: When you’re praying, do not use meaningless phrases as others do when they think they’ll be heard because of their many words. Do not act like that for your Father knows what you need before you ask. Pray then like this: Our Father in heaven, Holy is Your name. May Your kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us for intruding on others as we forgive those who intrude upon us. And do not bring us into times of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For You have the kingdom, and You have the power, and You are the glory forever. Amen. If you forgive people for wronging you, our heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive their wrongs, how can things be right with you and our Father? ©2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase of today’s Daily Bible Reading in Matthew 6:7-15 Note from Mary : Most church denominations and most Christians kn

Bible Prayers, then and now

The prayers recorded in the Bible help us to: form our prayer life in-form our faith re-form or revise our thinking on spiritual matters More importantly, Bible prayers can re-unite the Body of Christ and empower us as we agree in prayer, claiming Holy Scriptures and praying Bible prayers for people, places, and events around the world. Our churches, families, and communities need this prayer power too, and so do we – as individuals facing discouragement or hardships of some kind. So, Lord willing, we’ll resume our search of biblical prayers – from Genesis to Revelation but also as the Holy Spirit leads us into prayers found in the Daily Bible Readings. May God bless us, guide us, and give us the prayers to pray in Jesus’ Name. ©2013, Mary Harwell Sayler ~~
