Teach Us To Pray

When He finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray…’”Matthew 6:9-13 (NIV) “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. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one, for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.”
“Our Father in Heaven”

Matthew 6:33 (NIV) But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.Luke 12:31 (TLB) He will always give you all you need from day to day if you will make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.Luke 19:10 (NIV) For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”1 Timothy 2:1–4 (TPT) Most of all, I’m writing to encourage you to pray with gratitude to God. Pray for all men with all forms of prayers and requests as you intercede with intense passion. And pray for every political leader and representative, so that we would be able to live tranquil, undisturbed lives, as we worship the awe-inspiring God with pure hearts. It is pleasing to our Savior-God to pray for them. He longs for everyone to embrace his life and return to the full knowledge of the truth.
