Living Hope's Verse Of The Week-Matthew 6:9-10

Matthew 6:9-10 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.

If someone asked you the question, "How do I pray?" Our answer would most likely be, "Just talk to God."  While there is a lot of truth in that, it falls short of answering the question.  Many times we have trouble just talking to those who are closest to us, so how am I just suppose to talk to God.  Just talk to God, would never be Jesus answer.  The disciples did ask Jesus to teach them to pray, and Jesus taught them a prayer, what we call "The Lord's Prayer."  A prayer that we should all pray, daily.  This prayer forms us, so that we can pray rightly.  And as we are formed we  can, "Just talk to God."
