Pray now, pray every single day, pray throughout every day that you have left on this earth. The Lord will hear your prayers.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will,
He hears us.
1 John 5:14
Every day we are seeing major changes to life as we once knew it. We are in the last days, the beginning of sorrows. See link Signs of Jesus Return. Protect your heart, your mind and your soul from this world and seek first, the Lord.
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, go to this link Salvation, and this link ABC’s of Salvation right now. The most important prayer is the prayer of salvation. Believe that Jesus is the Christ. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.
During the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus was praying and when he stopped praying, one of his disciples asked him to teach them to pray. Jesus said the following below.
9 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, 10Hallowed be Your name. Thy kingdom come. Your will be done On earth, as it is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13And lead us not 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 & Luke 11:2-4
This prayer is so relevant for right NOW, for today, and for until our Lord returns. If you do not know where to start in praying regularly, start with this prayer, the Lords prayer stated above.
This prayer is so perfect. Let’s take a look at each verse.
Verse 9 gives reverence (honor & respect) to the Father.
Verse 10 establishes the will of the Father and following his path, his teachings right now while we are alive on this earth. It’s not saying to follow the worlds path or teachings. This verse is clearly saying to follow God only, just as it is in heaven. This is so relevant today. With so much deception, steering, and attacks, we must cling to the truth and turn from the lies of the enemy.
Verse 11 is petitioning the Lord to sustain us. We need the Lord both spiritually and physically to guide us. If we do not have him, then we are lost.
Verse 12 is petitioning the Lord to forgive our sins and we are to forgive the sins of others. Jesus gave us the parable of the unforgiving servant in Matthew 18:21-35. We must forgive others that have wronged us because our sins have been forgiven. Matthew 6:14-15 See Salvation link.
Verse 13 is petitioning the Lord to guide us and deliver us from the enemy, from evil, from the evil one. OH! How much we need this right now! Pray for guidance. Pray to not be deceived. In Matthew 24:24 it states this: … insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Kjv
In the second portion of verse 13 it gives all honor, all power, and all glory to the Lord.
Jesus gave us the best prayer for right now.
Not only did Jesus give us the best prayer, but Jesus also instructed us where and how to pray.
“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corner of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you they have their reward. Matthew 6:5
But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. Matthew 6:6-8
If you haven’t before, start now. Find that place in your home where you can shut everything concerning this world out and pray to the Father in Jesus name. There’s no fancy words needed. Just humble yourself as the tax collector did in the parable Jesus told in Luke 18:9-14.
Bow down, pray and worship the Lord.
Jesus is coming! Are you ready?
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand. Psalm 95:6-7
