Teach Me How to Pray
Once Jesus was in a certain place praying, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.’
Jesus gives the Church, and me, the method on how I am to pray this morning:
Acknowledge God's holiness.
Plead for His Kingdom
Ask for today's needs
Ask for forgiveness
Ask for protection from Satan
Father, may your name be held holy,
your kingdom come;
give us each day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins,
for we ourselves forgive each one who is in debt to us.
