daily word - Lord's Prayer

Dale Cresap's picture

My disciples asked me to teach them to pray, and I did. You know the result as the Lord’s Prayer. Most Christians are familiar with it and it is probably the most commonly recited prayer. Do you have it committed to memory and recite it yourself? Yet you can follow my disciple’s example even more closely by doing what they did, and asking me to teach you to pray. The response I give you may not gain worldwide fame and acceptance, but it should have special meaning for you if I give it to you directly. You speak of your faith in me as a relationship, so the relational aspect of this approach may be more important than having the words just right.
