What God's Word says about Prayer:
I will bring them to my holy mountain of Jerusalem and will fill them with joy in my house of prayer. I will accept their burnt offerings and sacrifices, because my Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations.
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 My JOY!
Romans 15:13 (New Living Translation)
13 I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
What Joy (Psalm 146)
Written by: Sarah Emerson
You made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, Your promises remainYou give justice to the weak, You care for the widow and orphan, Forever Lord, You reign
What joy, what joy for those whose hope is in the name of the Lord
What peace, what peace for those whose confidence is Him alone
You make the blinded eye to see, and cherish those who seek Your face, Your faithful love endures
You came to let the slave go free, You cause the sinner to sing praise, In You we are secure
Ha lle lujah (forever we will sing)
Ha lle lujah (praises to the king)
2. Pray for His Will to be done! (vs.10)

4. Pray for forgiveness and that I would forgive others. (vs. 12)
Luke 6:37 (New Living Translation)
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.
5. Pray for Help against Temptation! (vs. 13)
James 1:2 (New Living Translation)
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.
Don't forget to put your armor on....
Belt of Truth
Breastplate of Righteousness
Feet fitted with the Gospel of Peace
Shield of Faith
Today, I am going to focus on: Thanking Him because
If you are strangers to prayer you are strangers to power." ~Billy Sunday
