Our Father who is in heaven... Thursday November 14th, 2002
Peter, John, James, Andrew and the other disciples said, "Lord, teach us to pray". And Jesus said to them:
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye:
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed, Holy, Sacred and Blessed is Thy name.
I thank Thee Lord for all the wonderful things you have done for me and mine, I praise Thee Lord for this day Thou has given us and for letting us be born here in the USA where persecution is yet to come.
Thank You Lord for all You have done for us but mostly Lord I thank thee for shedding Your Precious, Sinless and Sacred Blood so that I can keep mine and still be with You throughout all eternity.
Oh Lord God in heaven, Creator of all things in and on the earth and throughout all the heavens, hear I beseech Thee this prayer.
Help us Lord to be as Thou would have us be, let Thy kingdom come, Lord, let Thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven.
Forgive us Lord for those things we have said, done, thought and dreamt that are sins, for our lives are sin. Forgive us Lord and help us to forgive those who have offended us, who owe us, and who have harmed us in any way real or imagined.
Oh Lord God Creator of all things, give unto us this day our daily bread, not the bread that adds bulk to our waist Lord but the true daily bread, the bread which is Thy Word, for Thou has told us that man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Lord we ask that Thou would keep us safe, that Thou would keep us under Your wing as a mother hen keeps her chicks, that You would keep us from temptation and that You would surround us and ours with Your angels protecting us from satan, his minions, his ilk and those who serve him knowingly and unknowingly.
For through You all things are possible Lord and this is Your kingdom Lord and all glory, honor and worship belong to You Lord.
Help us Lord to do what is right in Thy sight, let us serve You Lord as You would have us serve. Take away all doubt and suspicion from us Lord and let us be with thee from this day forward.
How do you pray? The Lord's prayer is an outline, it is not a canned prayer, but is His outline to us on how we should approach the throne of God in prayer and supplication. Never fail to thank Him, never fail to praise Him and never be afraid to approach Him.
And never fail to dedicate and give your children to Him from the day they are conceived till the day you are separated from them in death. Pray for your wife, pray for your kids, pray for your pastor, your boss and me and mine. Pray for the president and the attorney general and pray that this congress and senate will quickly start the process of ending abortion.
Pray without ceasing! (1 Thessolonians 5:17)
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
