How to pray

`This, then, is how you should pray “Our Father in heaven…”‘ (Matt 6:9)

This prayer begins where all true prayers start, with the spirit of adoption: Our Father.

But then the childlike soul begins to understand the grandeur of the Father and ascends into heartfelt adoration

There is only a small step from adoring worship to a glowing missionary spirit: Your kingdom come, Your will be done

Next follows an expression of dependence on God: Give us this day

As you are illuminated by the Spirit, you realize you are sinful, so you beg for mercy: Forgive us

Then knowing you are accepted by God, you ask for strength.

Finally, a result of all this, there is triumphant praise: for Yours is the … glory forever”
