When was the last time you prayed? Maybe it was the other day when you were studying for final. Maybe it was last week when your mother was in the hospital. Maybe it was last year when your sister was in a serious accident. Or maybe it was this past Sunday at church. Whenever it was, all of us at one time or another have prayed. Many of us didn’t know exactly what to say, all we knew was we needed to pray.
Jesus’ disciples wanted more than just a prayer because they needed something. They wanted to know how to continually talk to God and Jesus responded to their question in Luke 11:2-4 when He said, “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 is indebted to us. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
How is your prayer life? Do you pray just when you need something or do you have a continual prayer life with the Father. God wants to communicate with us. He enjoys fellowshipping with us. And by the way, He stills answers those other prayers as well.
