So He said to them, "When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. "And do not lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." Luke 11:2-4

There certainly was something very compelling about the way Jesus prayed. After observing Him, a disciple begged, "Lord, teach us to pray." Jesus' response, while almost childlike in its simplicity, was profound. Each theme of the prayer directs our attention away from ourselves and onto God. It starts with an expression of worship before moving to a statement of trust in God's providence. Confession and the forgiveness of others come next, not separate, but bound together. Finally, there is a plea for divine intervention in dealing with inevitable temptations ahead.

Notice that The Lord's Prayer does not include requests for the things we want. Does this mean that we should not pray for these things? On the contrary, as we read on in verses 5-11, Jesus expects petitions to be included.

Yet He knows we tend to focus excessively on our own desires. Our anxious hearts find the peace that passes understanding when we shift our focus away from ourselves and toward God. As always, Jesus knows our hearts better than we do.

INSIGHT: RUN YOUR RACE TODAY WITH YOUR EYES FIXED ON JESUS, THE FOUNDER AND PERFECTER OF FAITH.

Prayer: Dear Lord, Give me the desire to talk to You in prayer. Help me to use Jesus' Our Father prayer as a guideline for my prayers to You. In Jesus' Name Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
