Put God on Speed Dial with Prayer

The Lords Prayer

Sometimes we need to set some time out & take a moment and say something to God, communicate with God and forge a relationship with him through prayer. My pastor used to say 7 days makes one WEEK but 7 days without prayer makes one WEAK. Not weak physically but it surely has an effect on one spiritually. Prayer is a great foundation to have as a Christian because it allows you an opportunity to tell ALL, bear it all to God whom you have confidence in. As a believer, Power, Joy, Peace & Love is our inheritance, the bible says rejoice and encourages to rejoice always. Philippians 4:4 says Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

If there is anything that hinders Joy in our lives then it says we should submit it to God in prayer. God listens and answers prayer. Jesus taught his disciples a simple prayer and this is a great way to begin a prayer life then later grow to using your own words according to what is in your heart at that moment. Try it, this prayer is known as the ‘Lords Prayer’ ,it can be found in Matthew 6:9-13 and goes as follows

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
    but deliver us from the evil one.[b]
