In Matthew 6, when Jesus preached His sermon on the mount, He taught the people how to pray. He revealed what is most important in prayer. And that is to pray with a genuine heart before God, and not just to pretend in order to be acknowledged by men. Jesus clearly demonstrated the heart of the Father on prayer. It’s not about how long or how open someone is in praying; it’s clearly about the motive of the heart. The heart that sincerely wants to connect to the Father.
So today, utter this short prayer with your whole heart. Surely, Jesus modeled this when He taught the people 2,000 years ago how to pray. Remember that the goal is your relationship with Him. Not practices, traditions, or religion.
Verse Of The Day
Matthew 6:9-13, “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name,
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'”
