“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.” (Matthew 6:7-13 NLT)
As we continue in our “Life Hacks” series this week, we take a look at prayer. Listen as Pastor Jesse reads from a familiar passage in Matthew 6 as he unpacks the prayer Jesus modeled for us. Here, we see some things that prayer is and isn’t as we seek to better understand why we pray, and we pick up some simple and practical life hacks to transform and become more engaged in our prayer lives.
