Whether you’re Baptist, Emergent, Anglican, or Catholic, we can all agree that when Jesus says to “pray in this way,” its important.
Our Father who is 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 lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
There isn’t anything to argue here. Sure, we can find something to debate. But we have to look for it. Because it doesn’t get much more straightforward than this.
This prayer has changed my life. It makes me sad that it happened so late in my Christian walk. But I’m joyful that it happened at all.
Pray this way. Exactly as Jesus recommended. See what happens.
