Easy Steps to Daily Prayer

Matthew 5:5-13

[Jesus] “And when you come before God, don’t turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for fifteen minutes of fame! Do you think God sits in a box seat?

“Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.

“The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. (The Message Translation)

“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 sins,

        as we forgive those who sin against us.

       Lead us away from temptation,

        and rescue us from the evil one.
