In Matthew 6:7-15, the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. He said not to use vain repetition. Thinking that you will be heard by talking a lot. Jesus said to enter your prayer closet. Then enter into the throne room with thanksgiving and praise. When you do, you can enter into the throne room. Jesus said to say thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. This verse change the way I prayed. When I saw what prayer meant. We ask God to do something for us. When we pray His will, God will bring His will down to earth and answer our prayer. If you don’t get before God and pray, your prayer is hit or miss. The Lord prayer isn’t rote or something to say repeatedly. It is an example of how to pray. Yes, we can use that prayer to pray, but mean it the first time. There is a second part to the pray. God says if we don’t forgive others, God will not forgive us. This means that you are in sin and God will not hear you. So, when you pray forgive others that your prayer may be heard by God. Your ability to reach God with prayer isn’t to be wasted on yourself. God says if we pray for others, He will heal us. God knows what you need before you ask. So, begin to pray for others and God will supply all of your needs. You first must believe that He is and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Seek God and pray with your heart for others and watch what God will do.
