Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Do you have a part of your day that you would like to freeze in time? In other words, is there a time when your mind, body, and spirit are at ease and free from the pressures of life? For me, it is the first part of the day, the moment I wake up and say good morning to God. It is a time filled with praise and adoration to thank Him for what He has done for me in days past and for what He will do in the days to come. It is a personal time between me and God, a time of prayer.

Even the disciples recognized the significance of prayer and so much so that one day they turned to Jesus to ask, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples” (Luke 11:1). Notice the disciples did not ask “what” to pray; instead, they asked “how” to pray. Jesus shared with His disciples a prayer by which to model their prayers, and He begins by giving praise and adoration saying, “Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name” (Matt. 6:9).

Spending time with our heavenly Father in prayer is much more than offering a list of “please do” or “please don’t,” it is a time of fellowship unlike any other. It is a time to remember and recognize who He is to put who we are into perspective and our purpose into clear focus, as we align our will to His. Spending time with the Lord the first thing in the morning, whether it is when you wake up or on your drive to work, taking that time and taking with God will make a difference in your day and your life.
