6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
If anyone should not pray at all, it should be our LORD JESUS CHRIST; the second person of the “TRINITY” yet He prayed.(Psalms. 120:1-7).
3. LEARN GOD’S WAY OF DOING IT RIGHT
1. The Bible let us about a sound prayer life is based on relationships. Prayer is a communication between two personalities who are in a relationship. True prayer Life is built on a sound relationship with the Father. He is our Father and we are His Children. One proof that one is a child of GOD ALMIGHTY is that one has answers to prayers. That is one of the thing’s that distinguishes a Christian from an unbeliever; the Christian prays to heaven and receives definite and direct answers to his or her prayers. (Luke.11:1-4).
2. WORSHIP: When JESUS CHRIST was giving His disciples the pattern of prayer, one of the thing’s He taught them to say is,”hallowed be Thy name”. We must learn how to honor, worship and adore GOD ALMIGHTY. It is not only when you are praying that you honor and/ or hallow the name of the LORD, it must become part of your life. Do not use the name of JESUS CHRIST in vain throughout the day and come to Church on Sunday to play religion with the name of GOD and think you are hallowing His name; it just does not work that way, which is why many people don’t get answers to their prayers. So, don’t form the habit of praying to soothe your conscience or just as a religious duty. Let there be true worship, true adoration, true honor for the name of the LORD! (Psalms. 92:1-10).
3. Learn GOD’S way of doing it right: The third critical issue from that passage says: “Thy kingdom come” What is the kingdom of GOD ALMIGHTY? The Kingdom is GOD’S way of doing things and being right, that is, GOD ALMIGHTY way of praying and praying right. The Bible says, since the days of “JOHN” the Baptist, the kingdom of GOD suffered violence and forceful men are violently taking their portions. This means since the day of “JOHN” the Baptist, the kingdom of GOD is being proclaimed and men are forcefully pressing into it, taking their share of what the kingdom is offering. What you are learning is to understand God’s way of doing it right, so that you can get your share of the blessings of prayer and your own portion of the benefits of praying correctly and not just praying endlessly without result! (Romans.8:1-17).
Let us go into what the law of the Spirit of life teaches: The controlling power of the “HOLY SPIRIT”, who is life-giving: Because Paul uses the word “LAW”, in several different ways in Romans ad means, e,g., a controlling power which is ” GOD’S LAW”(Romans.2:17-20; 10:3-5). I do hereby pray that our prayer will not be hindered in the name of our LORD and SAVIOR, Amen! Shalom!!!
