We should begin praying by worshiping God.


Jesus started the Lord’s Prayer by hallowing the name of His heavenly Father. By stating that God is our Father in heaven, Jesus showed us how we ought to relate to God. Calling God our Father in heaven reflects two truths: it communicates His nearness to us as a Father, as well as His transcendence as the one who is in heaven. Both the intimacy and the omnipotent splendor of God are expressed through the words “Our Father in heaven.” 

This beginning of the Lord’s Prayer also reflects the nature of God as holy because His name needs to be hallowed. In other words, we begin our prayers with the acknowledgment of God’s holy nature. 

Jesus continued by saying, “Let your Kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Not only are we to begin our prayers by acknowledging God’s holy dominion over the universe, our first request is that of submission. We are to ask for God’s Kingdom to be manifested in our lives and for His will to be accomplished in this world. In this, we also express our desire to do His will.

How many of our prayers begin with ourselves and our circumstances? 

“Jesus said, “This is how you should pray: “Father, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭11‬:‭2

In our home and others homes with family and friends (small groups), teaching videos, and meetings. Where we are invited to share. Colossians 2:6-7 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
