A lot of us have said the Lord’s prayer many times. The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. Jesus was giving the disciplines an example of how to pray effectively.
Matthew 6:9 NIV: 9 “This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Hallow means to honor, worship, reverence, and praise God. Psalm 100:4 says, Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
Matthew 6:10 NIV: 10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Jesus said not my will, but you will be done. The word of God is His will to bring heaven to earth.
Matthew 6:11 NIV: 11 Give us today our daily bread.
Lord, what are you saying to me today? Wait for God to speak to you. God also speaks through His word. Get a scripture to meditate on and allow the word to talk to you. The word is God.
Matthew 6:12 NIV: And forgive our debts, as we have also forgiven our debtors.
Lord, forgive me for the things I have done that I am aware of and unaware of. God, any wrongs were done to me, I forgive them. God, help me to forgive others so I can hear you properly, and my prayers will go through to you. God, any sin in my life blocking my prayers, show them to me. Any unforgiveness in my heart toward someone, God reveals it to me.
Matthew 6:13 King James Version: 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Ask God to help you in areas where you are weak in. Ask God to keep you from evil and protect you. Finally, end your prayer in thanksgiving to God.

God, I repent of my sins and forgive others who have sinned against me. God, help me in areas where I am weak and fall short. I can’t do life without you in the center of it.
