Using Matthew 6:7-14, we are led through a simple structure that we can use in our individual prayer life. The Lord’s Prayer is more than a prayer to be recited but rather one to be lived in our own prayer life. Breaking it down into five clear steps
– Relationship and worship
– Praying for God’s will among the nations, people and church
– Asking for our needs
– Forgiveness (sins of commission as well as omission)
– Lead us not into temptation (this involves asking for God’s wisdom and direction. It can well involve the reading of God’s word).
If we were to spend just ten minutes in each of these areas we would easily spend an hour in prayer.
