Teach me to Pray Teach Me To Pray When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, He gave them a simple 6 step pattern to follow. He didn’t intend for us to just pray the same words he spoke in Matthew 6:9, He intended it to be an outline for prayer. Use each verse of the Lord’s pray as a guideline to help keep your prayer-time on track. “Pray, then, in this way:” Step 1 “Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.” This is the call to praise and worship. Take time to honor the Lord and consider His greatness. Remember His faithfulness to you and and be encouraged by His promises. Step 2 “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.” Align yourself with God’s will, and listen to know His desires. Proclaim God’s will over your life, family, church, the lost, etc. Wait and allow the Lord to share His heart and will with you. Step 3 “Give us this day our daily bread.” Ask God for your needs and the needs of others. Be specific, and ask in faith for anything you know the Lord wants to give you (see step 2). Step 4 “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” Ask God for forgiveness in any areas of known sin, and speak out forgiveness toward anyone you have not forgiven. Step 5 “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” Stand in the authority of Christ and resist the enemy in whatever way he is coming against you or against others. Step 6 “For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.” Finish with proclaiming who God is and exalting His name. Take time to thank Him for the answers to come, and to worship Him as the Most High God.

1 Sarah R = "We call this "The Lord's Prayer" because the Lord Jesus taught us to pray it. Many more traditional Protestant and Catholic churches will recite the Lord's prayer during church services. We can find the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6 and Luke 11."
2 Sarah R = "See also: "A Teaching on the Lord's Prayer.""
3 Sarah R = ""Hallowed" means "holy." Our God is a Holy, perfect, blemishless, righteous God. The word "holy" is used over a thousand times in the Bible, and the vast majority of uses are related to God or that which is His."
