I find myself in prayer almost all of the time. Sometimes I meditate upon the word of the our Father and I can speak from personal experience on this, its effective. Jesus himself, as King over the Kingdom of Heaven instructs us to pray AFTER THIS MANNER…not in the sense like a recipe, or lyrcis that you recite over and over, Nay…that would be vain jangling. BUT rather, He helps lead us through, establishing where true Deity and Authority rests and helps to support our trust and faith in appealing to that relational bond.

Matthew 6:9-14
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:


Now, let’s break it down and really get a fuller understanding …..



After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Here, the word hallowed means Sanctified, the word itself is only used 22 times in the bible, but this particular meaning and the root of the word traced back to the Greek lexicon is specific to the Lords prayer. God’s will is not some obscure thing, the entire word of God gives us a blueprint of what He expects.

Philippians 2:13for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.

Romans 12:2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
 

 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 

The Lord doesn’t need any help in establishing His Authority or dominion but Here He reminds us where our help comes from. The Kingdom of God is ruled over by Jesus Christ, our King, whom he sent to Earth and who ascended back to Heaven. Gods will is to offer Salvation to all of Creation, which He did and still does. 

Luke 10:9 and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.


11 Give us this day our daily bread. 

God created everything and provided us a self sustaining environment. The earth is populated with all we need to survive. As a mater of fact, we all partake in Gods rich bounty of provision whether we are deserving or not.

Matthew 5:45 that ye may be the children of your Father who is in Heaven. For He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Genesis 1:11-12
11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

          Phillipians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by 
          Christ Jesus.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 

    Here, many people read this as an ultimatum but really Jesus is making a comparison. As we have the capacity to forgive HOW MUCH MORE SO will God forgive us?! Afterall, He not only provided a way BUT He effectually put himself on the alter of sacrifice to ensure it. Obviously there are enough other passages that explain to us that we ought to forgive others, after all, the unforgiveness will destroy the holder there of, NOT the perpetrator.

Luke 17 : 3 – Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.



13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


The Lord is certainly not assessing any responsibility for causing us to go awry, we have this capacity all on our own. Its a statement of fact, that He would not, could not and will not. 

James 1:13-15 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.


 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

Here again, we see the Lord, encouraging us in that forgiveness department. Reminding us, that we are in a position of Grace through God’s Mercy. It was totally His work on that Cross that funded our Salvation! Isn’t God like a parent to us in this sense. What parent hasnt had the conversation with their child to share or be nice to others, reminding them that they themselves would not like being treated in such a way! God sees our weakness’ and knows full well, we are quick to cry out when stepped on and slow to acknowledge others whom we might have hurt.



I truly hope this EYE Opening look at the Lords prayer renews in you a sense of Supreme Confidence in your prayer time.
