Luke 11:1-13

Once Jesus was in a certain place praying. As he finished, one of his disciples came to him and said, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.’

2 Jesus said, ‘This is how you should pray:[a]

“Father, may your name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come soon.
3 Give us each day the food we need,[b]
4 and forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation.[c]

Can you picture this scene.  Jesus is praying and one of the Disciples is watching!  He is watching How Jesus talks with God.  Once Jesus is done, the disciple asks Him to teach them how to pray.  And Jesus does.

He teaches them a simple prayer that is not to complicated.  Notice it doesn’t have big words and isn’t supper long.  Prayer is simply talking to God.  Many times we make it harder than it is.

You don’t have to use big words, you just simply need to talk with God like you would talk with a friend.  He wants to listen . . . will you give him a call?

Gods Phone Number: Jeremiah 33:3

“‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'”
