It is More Then just mere words ....

Matthew 6:9-13

King James Version (KJV)
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen

Wow this is a powerful prayer if we apply the principles of this prayer to our life daily and not just recite the words of a Bible passage our world would be a happier place.

When I started to pray this prayer daily I just said the words but when I asked God to teach me to be a better Christian so could fully understand Fathers Love for me and when I applied these things to my life I became thankful, grateful, forgiving, loving. I sing to our Father, I live my life differently I am a changed person because I use this prayer as an example on how I need to pray daily and not just say the words.

Example: My prayer tonight would go something like this.....

Dear Father In Heaven, Thank you for providing me three meals today. Thank you for the warm clothes on my back and the Job that provides me the medical insurance to pay for my medications. 
Father thank you for taking my will and making it yours and giving me your power to forgive those who angered me today.  Thank you for showing me how to be a forgiving person, and how to love and show kindness to those who rub me the wrong way
 and while I did get angry and blew it today at least once
 you forgave me and reminded me how to let go
and showed me I need you too take control.

Thank you Father for reminding me that although I have a credit card I should not use it and remind me to stick on budget so that I can become dept free just like you planned in the beginning.  Thank you for removing the temptations I didn't realize were temptations today. And Thank You for reminding me of your promises of tomorrow through
Your word.         Amen

The singer Plum has a song that plays on the radio
Need You Now

Well everybody's got a story to tell
And everybody's got a wound to be healed
I want to believe there's beauty here
So, I guess you're tired of holding on
I can't let go, I can't move on
I want to believe there's meaning here

How many times have you heard me cry out
"God please take this"?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

Standing on a road I didn't plan
Wondering how I got to where I am
I'm trying to hear that still small voice
I'm trying to hear above the noise


Though I walk, though I walk through the shadows
And I, I am so afraid
Please stay, please stay right beside me
With every single step I take

How many times have you heard me cry out?
And how many times have you given me strength?


I need you now
I need you now

This was me feeling desperate and helpless so alone and afraid. I would be so lost if it weren't for
our Father and His promises in His word.
 The Lords Prayer to me is a reminder for me to be thankful, prayerful, forgiving,  to let go of things and let Him take the lead and letting Him have the all the Glory to remind me to PRAISE Him ...

 HE deserves our praise daily and we should use our words and not just recite some words we memorized but put loving spirit behind each word I pray to our Father.

Did you know that it is impossible to truly love when your heart is unforgiving?  When we hold on to anger, hurt and resentment we block love from entering or escaping our heart. The Lords prayer reminds us reminds me to forgive those who hurt us and for me who has control issues and don't like to let go of things,
 the Lords prayer reminds me to let it go. 

The moment I let go of things I shouldn't of been holding onto my heart changes and the immediate love of our Father is instantly felt. I still cry out to Father I need you but it isn't as desperate or hopeless prayer but more of I know your there and listening take control Father cause I am not handling this Your way.

Thank You Father for your faithfulness in our lives and thank you for never going back on your promises Father.  I will praise your name Father for your Love is so great it is beyond description. Thank you for never giving up on us! AMEN

If you read this and don't know first hand of our Fathers Love for our lives and want to know more just send me a message.
Don't feel comfortable talking to me no problem any Bible Based Church in your area or Christian Radio station (like KLOVE) have pastors on call to answer peoples questions and show them verses of God's Promises and Love. 

Merry Christmas to all my readers!
Jesus is the Reason to celebrate this season!

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
