Teach Us To Pray

     In life there are things we need to learn. If we’re honest, our prayer life struggles. The time, fervency and desire to pray is weak. If we want to get in God's presence and have God use us, we have to learn to pray. Even the disciples asked Christ’s to teach them to pray. 

     There is a difference in saying prayers and praying. Praying is a relationship with God and communication with God . We need to ask ourselves "how do we pray? The Lord himself taught the deciples to pray and the pattern to pray. The Lord’s Prayer is a model prayer to teach us a pattern to pray. 

     Do not always ask, but remember to thank God for all he’s done. Give joy, praise, honor and glory to God who saved us. Pray with a purpose. He wants to involve us. As Christians live in the present and pray in the present. So often we focus on future and what’s ahead, but we don’t need to think about tomorrow. He wants to pardon us: God forgive me. Forgiveness will restore relations with God.  We can't live and walk in sin and not feel conviction and get our hearts and minds back on the Lord.  Ask for guidance. Praying to God, who is holy, sacred and in heaven, wants to meet our needs. Once we understand the potential of prayer. We can’t understand, just how much more God desires for us!

 

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. Luke 11:1
