What God's Word says about Prayer:
Hebrews 11:6 (New International Version, ©2010)
6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
I am using the "Lord's Prayer" as a guide. (Matthew 6:9-13)
1. Praise God for Who He is! (vs. 9)
Today, I am going to focus on: He is Everlasting!
Psalm 90:2 (New International Version, ©2010)
2 Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
2. Pray for His Will to be done! (vs.10)
Today, I am going to focus on: His will in my life.
3. Pray for Him to meet our needs! (vs. 11)
Today, I am going to focus on:
- My children
- My dad's birthday
- Salvation for friends
4. Pray for forgiveness and that I would forgive others. (vs. 12)
5. Pray for Help against Temptation! (vs. 13)
Put On my Armor!
Belt of Truth
Breastplate of Righteousness
Today, I am going to focus on: Thanking Him because He
