A short guide to prayer.
To begin, read with a desire for greater understanding, the following passages: Matt 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4, Luke 11:8-13.
Jesus’ teachings on prayer:
First, give recognition and reverence to God from who we need governance.
- Daily needs
- Forgiveness of sins dependent on our ability to forgive others, i.e. a new heart
- Help! Recognition of our insufficiency and inability. Help to overcome temptations, sin, and evil. Help, to keep our new hearts pure.
Be persistent. Do not be afraid to ask. Ask, seek, knock. Ask for the Holy Spirit. Remember that God desires to give us good gifts.
