The Apostles asked this question both in Luke 11:1 and Matthew 6:8 This was His reply in Matthew 6:9 and Luke 11:2
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
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.
Do you pray this prayer? Do you know it off by heart?
Father asked me to speak about Prayer. One of the things Yeshua taught is how to pray … The Lords Prayer in Matthew 6:9 and Luke 11:2 is a vital prayer for every one to pray and if you do not know it then I suggest you book mark it in your Bibles and pray this prayer every morning and every night. This prayer alone will change everything. It has contained in it the words of all the essentials and covers every aspect of our daily lives. You can add to it if you wish, however the Father already knows what you have need of just by praying this prayer to Him. People you come in contact with that are in need of prayer. The Father knows this and it is done. Never have fear or doubt that your prayer is not being answered as this enables the enemy to come and steal you faith.
The one thing I do know is this prayer changed me completely from negative thinking to positive thinking. Believe with out a shadow of a doubt that your prayers will be answered and not in your timing, but, in God the Father’s timing. Ask and it shall be given! Ask not, you receive not! but, if you ask a miss you will not receive … eg. asking for wants out of greed and personal gain. All our needs are met with in the Lord’s Prayer. I am going to put in what is contained in the Lord’s Prayer … More study on this in the Prayer menu.
