Teach Me to Pray
“Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” Matthew 6: 8
Communication is a vital part to any relationship.
A relationship with Christ should be no different. Many of us are told from a young age that daily prayer is essential to our lives with God. I often find this line delivered by Jesus comforting because I struggle to remember that God already knows my prayers before I even say them. We do not need to preoccupy ourselves with long lists of people and hardships rather we should focus on the quality of our conversation with Christ. While daily prayer is important and essential to a strong relationship with Christ our time spent in prayer should not be long scripted lists but avenues to deepening our commitment to Christ’s place in our lives.
Dear Lord, teach me to pray. Amen
Is 55: 10-11, Ps 34: 4-7, 16-19, Mt 6: 7-15
