I have had trouble understanding parables, prophecies and some of Psalms and Proverbs but something that seems more simple than those I never really understood and that is the Lord’s prayer. It’s really simple but what does it actually mean? This is how someone told me what it meant:
“Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven,
By doing this we recognizing our relationship with him.
Hallowed be Your name.
We are giving God the respect He deserves.
‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
We are putting God’s will before ours.
‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
We are asking God to forgive us and are saying that we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
We are asking God to protect us from Satan and to save us from Satan’s wrongs.
[ For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’ ]
We are letting God know that we know who He is.
Matthew 6:9-10, 12-13 NASB
Daniel also prayed in this way (Daniel 9) and he was a prayer Warrior.
I pray that this has help you understand the Lord’s Prayer better like it has me.
