Summary: IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER, THE WAY JESUS TAUGHT US.

FATHER ANOINT YOUR WORD TODAY INTO OUR HEARTS. THE LORD IN HIS WORD, PRECIOUS WORD TEACHES US HOW TO PRAY, NOW REMEMBER PRAYER IS A SPIRIT, SO GOD ANOINTS US SO WE CAN PRAY.

IN MATHEW 6:9 HE TELLS US ABOUT THE PRAYER, HE TELLS US ABOUT THE PATTERN, RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP.

THERE ARE SEVEN PETITIONS IN THE PRAYER, THE FIRST THREE ARE ADDRESSED TO GOD, AND THE OTHER-FOUR ARE ABOUT OUR NEEDS AND CONCERNS.

IN MATHEW 6:9 HE TELLS US ABOUT THE PRAYER, HE TELLS US ABOUT THE PATTERN, RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP.

OUR FATHER, AS SOON AS WE SAY THAT, THE RELATIONSHIP STARTS, FATHER AND SON, OR FATHER AND DAUGHTER AND THEN THESE REVELATIONS COME TO PAST, YOU SAYING MY MASTER, MY SUPPLIER, MY CREATOR, MY NOURISHER, MY SANCTIFIER, MY HEALER AND SO ON.

NOW JESUS IS GIVING US A PATTERN OF PRAYER, WHEN HE SAYS MY FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN, NOT ONLY WE FIND AUTHORITY, BUT SOMETHING ELSE IS SEEN HERE, THAT IS VERY REMARKABLE, DOMINION. YOU CANNOT PRAY TO A GOD WHOM YOU CANNOT BELIEVE, AND THEN BELIEVE THAT HE IS POWERFUL, OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT. THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE LORD IS HERE, YOU BELIEVE IN HIS SOVEREIGNTY. NOTHING IS HIDDEN FROM HIS SIGHT. YOU SEE THAT PEOPLE OFTEN PRAY AND HAVE QUESTIONS, WHY PRAY WHEN HE KNOWS EVERYTHING. THE ANSWER IS PRAYERS ACTIVATE YOUR FAITH, TO RECEIVE EVERYTHING THE PRAYER RELEASES YOUR FAITH IN WORDS, TO RECEIVE THE ANSWER. IT IS LIKE WRITING A LETTER, POSTING IT AND THEN WAITING FOR AN ANSWER.

PRAYER IS NOT POSSIBLE IF YOU DON'T KNOW HIM. WE MUST KNOW HIM IN RELATIONSHIP, IN FELLOWSHIP, HIS AUTHORITY AND HIS DOMINION. HE KNOWS EVERYTHING, NOTHING IS HIDDEN FROM HIM.

THEN JESUS SAID HALLOWED BE THY NAME, HERE WE ENTER IN A CELEBRATION, I WORSHIP YOU, YOUR NAME I EXALT AND I PRAISE. NOW PRAISE IS VERY IMPORTANT IN WORSHIPPING, OTHERWISE IT IS NOT EFFECTIVE. THY NAME, THAT IS GOD HIMSELF, WITH ALL THE ATTRIBUTES OF HIS DIVINE NATURE, HIS POWER, WISDOM, JUSTICE AND MERCY.

THEN JESUS SAYS THY KINGDOM COME, THE WORD KINGDOM HERE MEANS REIGN. IN Mt 3:2. (REPENT AND THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WILL COME) THE PETITION HERE IS AN EXPRESSION OF A WISH, THAT GOD MAY REIGN EVERY WHERE , THAT HIS LAWS MAYBE OBEYED , ESPECIALLY THAT THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST MAYBE ADVANCED EVERYWHERE UNTIL HIS KINDOM COME, AND THE WORLD WILL BE FILLED WITH HIS GLORY.

THE THIRD ONE IS THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN,HERE WEARE ALIGNING GODS WILL WITH OUR WILL,WE ARE SUBMITTING OURSELVES TO HIM, AND ASKING HIS WAYS TO TRIUMPH. ITS LIKE WE WANT HIM TO INTRODUCE HIS HEAVEN ON EARTH. ALSO LIKE DO WITH US LIKE YOU WANT IT TO BE DONE . ITS NOT LIKE MY WILL BUT YOURS O LORD. ENABLE ME TO DO WHAT IS PLEASING TO YOU, AND NOT ME.

FAITH...OUR FATHER

HOPE...THY KINGDOM COME

LOVE....THY WILLBE DONE.

NOW THE OTHER FOUR...

THEN JESUS SAID GIVE US THIS DAY AND OUR DAILY BREAD, WHY IS THIS DIFFERENT BECAUSE OUR NATURAL BEING IS AS IMPORTANT AS OUR SPIRITUAL BEING. BECAUSE AFTER GODS GLORY, KINGDOM AND HIS WILL WE PRAY FOR NECESSARY COMFORTS, AND SUPPORT OF OUR LIVES WHICH ARE ASKED AND THEN GIVEN TO US. WE ASK GOD NOT TO SELL US, OR LOAN US BUT GIVE IT TO US, BECAUSE WE ARE HIS CHILDREN. AND HE DETERMINES WHAT IS GOOD FOR US. THIS ALSO TEACHES US CHARITY, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR OURSELVES BUT FOR US WHICH IS PLURAL. AND HE GIVES IT TO US AS PROMISED.

NOW AFTER THIS IS FORGIVE OUR TRESPASSES, OR DEBTS, OVER HERE WE DO NOT OWE GOD MONEY OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL THINGS OF THIS WORLD. HERE SIN IS CONSIDERED AS OUR DEBT, GOD GAVE US THIS LIFE TO GIVE HIM GLORY AND WALK IN HIS GLORY. IF WE WALK AWAY FROM IT WE ARE SINNING AGAINST HIM AND THESE ARE OUR DEBTS, THAT WE WANT TO BE FORGIVEN. NOW FORGIVENESS COMES FROM GOD THROUGH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. WHILE SINNERS WE ARE IN DEBT TO INFINITE JUSTICE, BUT WHEN PARDONED WITH HIS MERCY WE ARE FREE. ISN'T THAT AMAZING. AS WE FORGIVE OUR TRESPASSES OR OUR DEBTORS, IN THE PAST IT WAS A PRACTICE THAT BEFORE YOU LIE DOWN IN YOUR BED, YOU HAVE TO FORGIVE YOUR DEBTORS,THAT MAN CONDEMNS HIMSELF TO SUFFER ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, WHO MAKES USE OF THIS PRAYER WITH REVENGE AND HATRED IN HIS OR HER HEART. IF WE CANNOT FROM THE HEART FORGIVE THEM, WE SHOULD HAVE THE ASSURANCE THAT GOD WILL NEVER FORGIVE US.

LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION, THE WORD TEMPTATION HOWEVER MEANS SOMETIMES TRIALS, AFFLICTION OR ANYTHING THAT TEST OUR VIRTUE. LIKE DAVID SAID IN HIS PRAYERS, INCLINE NOT MY HEART TO ANY EVIL THING, OR TO PRACTICE WICKED THINGS. GOD TEMPTS NO HUMANS, ITS ONLY THE EVIL THAT TEMPTS US. DO NOT PERMIT US, OR SUFFER US, TO BE TEMPTED TO SIN. IN THIS IT IS IMPLIED THAT GOD HAS SUCH CONTROL OVER US AND THE TEMPTER, AS TO SAVE US FROM IT WHEN WE CALL UPON HIM. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PRAYER HERE MEANS DO NOT AFFLICT,TRY US, INCLINE NOT OUR HEARTS TO ANY EVIL THINGS, OR WICKED WORKS.
