As we look deeper in Luke 11:2-4, we discover why prayer is so intentional for our life and the authority we get to have in the name of the Father.
Luke 11:2-4 MEV - 2 “When you pray, say, Our Father, who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come; Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. 3 Give us each day our daily bread. 4 And forgive When you pray say this simple but powerful words, us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”
In this passage (11:2-4) Jesus taught his disciples to pray this simple prayer which we know as the Lord’s Prayer.
In observing this passage, Luke 11:2-4, it is known as the “Our Daily Prayer” model. This prayer is simple in learning but yet so powerful and efficient. Jesus, suggests that we should have some priorities that should be in place as believers and followers of Christ. The prayer contains 6 petitions or requests: Three deals with God’s holiness which reflects purity, perfection, completeness and separation from evil and will, which deals with plans and desires that reflect his character and purposes for our life.
Looking at this passage it really encourages me to apply this in my daily life. Prayer Involves worship, expressing honor to our heavenly Father and communicating openly with him. Even for those who cannot relate to a good relationship with an earthly father. God who is a Good, Good, Father is everything, anyone who believes and calls on the name of the Lord, will be forever changed.
Father, we come to you, we’re humble! We want more of you. Let your presence encourage us to put prayer as a desire in our hearts ,mind, and spirit to build our faith. In your word you say, Ask and It shall be given, seek and you will find, knock and it shall be open unto you. Our trust and dependence is believing in your word that you take care of us, your children, your people, your servants in the name of the Father we pray! AMEN
