You Should Pray like This

"...your Father knows what you need before you ask him. So you should pray like this: ‘Our Father in heaven, may your name be held holy..."

Jesus is seated on a hill side giving His great Sermon on the Mount to the crowds.  His foundational teaching covers every aspect of Christian living.  Here He focuses om prayer.
Even though our Father in Heaven knows what we need before we ask, Jesus says pray is essential.  And the prayer, to be authentic, must be said in humility in that secret place where God alone is the audience.

Today I am to be a man of prayer.

Lord Jesus, You are the great role model for prayer.  May I be a witness to You as I pray.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
