06/24 Matthew 6:9-13
9 Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. 10 May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today the food we need, 12 and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. 13 And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.
This model prayer is important for us. It gives preeminence to God. He is first. He calls us to obedience and service. It reminds us of our need for the Father to provide for us, forgive us, protect us and give us safety as we live each day. The Lord God Almighty is for us and He will do what we need done to grow us in Jesus Christ.
