Pray the Lord's Prayer
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray.” Luke 11:1
When you say the Lord’s Prayer, you are praying for others as well as yourself. “Give us our daily bread” and “Deliver us from evil.” What we ask for ourselves, we ask for others. Even if you pray this prayer by yourself on a deserted island, you’re including yourself in the community of faith with every word. It’s as powerful today as it was 2,000 years ago.
Action Step: Pray the Lord’s Prayer, pausing every few lines to reflect on the great truths it contains. Pray it when you’re waiting at the dentist’s office, stuck in traffic, in the supermarket check-out lane.
Have a Blessed Day!
