Prayer

What should we pray for?  

– Acknowledge our relationship with God – Our Father

Praise God for his character or attributes – He is Holy

Acknowledge God’s rightful place in our lives – Your will be done in our lives

Ask God for our daily needs – Give each day our daily bread

Ask God to release us from guilt, shame, and uncleanness – Forgive us our sins

Tell God that we release everyone who is indebted to us – 

Ask God to keep us from situations where we do sinful, shameful things – Lead us not into temptation or hard testing

Ask God to keep us from evil – Deliver us from the evil one

How should we pray?

with Persistence

– with Confident Expectation

What is the result of prayer?

– The LORD gives us what we need, not necessarily what we want.

Luke 11
