The best of all prayers: Lord’s Prayer

"This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’" (Matthew 6:9-13)

The Lord’s Prayer, the one Jesus taught to his disciples (Matthew chapter 6 verses 9 to 13), is the blueprint by which all prayers must be patterned. You can recite it the way it is, verbatim. Or you can substitute it with your own words to best fit with your present situation or needs. It is a complete prayer.

Before you could even start to say a word of your prayer to God, He already knows what it is. So what’s the use of a prayer? What’s the point of telling it all to Him when He knows everything in the first place? What is your definition of a prayer? How do you pray? Why would you pray and to whom? Is it really effective? These are but just few of the questions the answers may vary from person to person.

You can pray any way you like any time of day, it is all up to you. But see to it though that when you pray, don’t forget to praise God, to thank Him for everything, to ask for His blessings and forgiveness, and for protection. Make it as private as possible.

To pray is to talk to God. To pray is to make your own person humble before the Lord. To pray is to glorify God’s name. To pray is to invite God into your life. To pray is to show how dependent you are to God.

The effectiveness of a prayer depends much on the sincerity of a person praying and not in its length. The best prayer is one that is short and direct to the point. It is not always expecting so much from Him to answer your every prayer but if you are righteous enough, to quote from the Holy Bible in the book of James chapter 5 and verse 16, your prayers will be heard.
