Prayer of the Day

First Week of Lent

March 7th, 2017

“Pray then in this way;  Our Father in heaven,  hallowed be your name.  Your Kingdom come.  Your will be done,  on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts,  as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And do not bring us to the time of trial,  but rescue us from the evil one.” Amen  (Matthew 6 : 9)

The model for our prayer is the Lord’s Prayer.  It is a summary of the whole Gospel,  the most perfect of all prayers.  Being taught and given to us by our Lord it is indeed the Word of God that goes out and succeeds in what it was sent to do.  It is the foundation of the daily prayer of all Christians.
