We have made it through the Lord's Prayer or his outline and will be move to Jesus Prayer In John.

Our Father (we acknowledge our adoption as your children through the death and resurrection of your son, by your grace we can cry, Daddy); hallowed be your name (your name, Jehovah, your many names, are holy and while we have this intimacy, this closeness of father-child, you are also our holy Lord); Your kingdom come (we pray for the second of Christ coming, we pray that your kingdom in us grows and matures, and for those in need of a savior we pray this, for those in need of your blessing and protection we pray this petition – so it is not only worship but a prayer for us and for others); your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (not only are we acknowledging You as our Lord and Master, our King, we also know that your will for us is good so we can also pray this for our own needs and for others on our list; we can pray that your kingdom come, your will be done and that really covers it all).

This has been a great journey, thank you for sharing it with me.

David Jeremiah in his book ”Prayer the Great Adventure” (this was one of our resources) kind of summed it up with the following:
Can you say "our" if your religion has no room for others and their needs? Can you say "Father" if you have not been born again and adopted as His child through the blood of Christ shed for your sin? Can you say "Who art in heaven" if all your inter­ests and pursuits are on earth? Can you say "hallowed be Thy name" if the One who is called by that name is not holy to you? Can you say "Thy kingdom come" if you are unwilling to give up your independence and accept the righteous reign of God? Can you say "Thy will be done" if you're unwilling or resentful of having to relinquish your own agenda? Can you say "on earth as it is in heaven" if you're not truly ready to give yourself to His service here and now?

Can you say "give us this day our daily bread" without expending honest effort for it, or by ignoring the needs of your fellow man? Can you say "forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors" if you continue to hold a grudge against someone? Can you say "lead us not into temptation" if you deliberately choose to remain in a situation where you're going to be tempted? Can you say "deliver us from evil" if you're not prepared to fight in the spiritual realm with the weapon of prayer? Can you say "Thine is the kingdom" if you don't give the King the disciplined obedience of a loyal subject? Can you say "Thine is the power" if you fear what your friends and neighbors may say or do? Can you say "Thine is the glory" if you're seeking your own glory first? Can you say "forever" if you're full of anxiety about the here and now? Can you say "amen" if you don't honestly mean, "Cost what it may, this is my prayer"?

You can always start a discussion thread in the forum if you disagree or have other thoughts. Our diversity challenges and helps us all grow in our faith.
