## The Lord’s Prayer _When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, He gave them a simple 6 step pattern to follow, known as the “Lord’s Prayer.” Jesus 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 prayer 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 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 so you can 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 ie. Ask and I will give you the nations as an inheritance. (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.” Ask God for the grace to stand firm in the face of temptation and resist the schemes of the enemy. Remembering to look to Jesus for the way of escape. 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. Wayne Dillard

1 Sarah R = "There's a video with a similar explanation of the Lord's Prayer here:https://www.deily.org/video/a-teaching-on-the-lords-prayer"
2 Sarah R = ""Hallowed" is a fancy word for "Holy". The Bible states clearly that ours is a Holy God. "Holy" is defined by Webster as "exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness." That describes God very well."
3 Shawn Bose = "The pursuit of placing one's own free will in line with that of the divine is one in which every one of your actions is in essence the correct one.  I love how this is captured in Virgil's last words to Dante at the top of Mt. Purgatory just before Dante is about to enter heaven.When all the stairway under us had spedAnd we had reached the highest step of all,Virgil fixed his eyes on me and said, "My son, now you have seen the temporal and  The eternal fire, and you have reached the place  Where on my own I can discern no further: "I’ve brought you here with intelligence and art. Let your own pleasure guide you from now on: You’re through the steep and through the narrow ways.  "See there the sun that shines upon your brow;  See the young grass, the flowers, and the shrubs,  Which here the earth all by itself produces.   "Until those beautiful, rejoicing eyes   Come, which in tears moved me to come to you,   You can sit down or walk among the flowers.    "Await no more a word or sign from me.    Your will is straightened, free, and whole — and not   To act upon its promptings would be wrong:     "I crown and miter you lord of your self." (Purgatorio Canto XXVII 125-142)"
