Practicing What We Pray Part #3

SCRIPTURE       Matthew 6:7-15 (The Message)

“The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. 8Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can 9pray very simply. Like this:

Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are.
10Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
as above, so below.
11Keep us alive with three square meals.

12Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
13Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
Yes. Yes. Yes.

14“In prayer there is a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God, for instance, without also forgiving others. 15If you refuse to do your part, you cut yourself off from God’s part.
