Matt 6:9 – In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

Jesus didn’t just tell us to pray but HOW to pray. We need to follow this pattern for successful praying.

Impossible to say ‘Our’ if we are not in unity with other believers.

We should pray together, in groups, every day – this is a daily prayer.

Our purposes should never be self absorbed, but should be the purposes we own together with others.

The first 5 points of the Lords’ Prayer are to do with God, not us. We need to put His purposes first, before ours!

We are called firstly to make His Name “hallowed” – revered, respected, sacred, beautiful.

He has placed His name, His reputation in our hands. The devil maligns the name of Jesus. We glorify it!

See you in church!
