So, He said to them, When you pray , say:
Our Father in Heaven,
Hallowed be Your name
Your Kindom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us day by day our daily bread
So I tell you, ask, and God will give to you.
Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will open for you.
Through our insincerity and and lack of interest, sometimes we give up on prayer very easily. God never gives up on us, even though we give up on Him. We should follow the example of Jesus and pray honestly, persistantly and faithfully.
Every day I say the same prayer. I like to think that it's not so much repetitious as it is persistant. I ask our Father to protect and guide those dear to me, my family and friends. I ask for healing for my granddaughter, I ask for protection for our Troups and guidance for our goverment leaders and our President and I Praise and Thank him for the many blessings I've received. Oh, and I ask that he bless our enemies with a change of heart. Every day starts off with this prayer. Some days I also pray for special things, like the hurricane or sometimes I also just say a big THANK YOU for an answered prayer.
Our blessed Lord has answered many prayers for me and I trust and believe that He answers them all -- in His own way and His own time.
Aways Say a Prayer!
