HOW DO WE PRAY? (PART 2)

November 20:2019

In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Matthew 6:9-13 (NKJV)

`

God has made a way for us today in the new covenant that no other generation had. In the old covenant, the Israelites could not approach Him as Father, but in this new covenant, we have the Holy Spirit in us, we have been adopted into the family of God, and through the Holy Spirit we can cry "Abba, Father!” And God will always grant access to His children.

When you want to pray, do not go through a list of names of God before you can talk to your Father. If you do that, then you are a son who does not understand his sonship. When you go to God in prayer, approach Him based on relationship. Do not go to Him like a servant to a master. He is your Father, so talk to Him as a son would talk to his father.

We are not servants of God; we are sons of God who serve our Father, and our service is based on responsibility. We are God’s sons! Abraham did not have this privilege, Moses did not have this privilege, Joshua did not have this privilege, even Daniel and David did not have this privilege. Therefore, we are a very privileged generation to be made “sons”.

God wants to have an intimate Father-son relationship with us. He wants us to see Him as a Father who cares for His children, not as a distant being in heaven to be feared and avoided. There is a marked difference between those who see Him as a Father and those who merely view Him as just God in heaven.

Beloved, when you acknowledge God as your Father and when you honour Him as a Father in prayer, you will get results as you pray and you will enjoy abundant life here on earth.
