Our Father

In this manner, therefore, pray: “Our Father. . .”

Matthew 6:9.

Think about that for a minute. Of all the ways Jesus could have taught His disciples to begin their prayers, He chose those two words, “Our Father” (Matthew 6:9) as the starting point. Random? No, Jesus was never less than intentional with His words. We all have different relationships with our earthly fathers—some good, some far less than that. However, praying in the way we should is not addressing “my” father or “your” father, but “our” Father, the One who sees us and hears us, and who knows what we need before we even ask Him (v 8).

What an amazing reassurance, especially on those days when we might feel forgotten, alone, abandoned or simply just not worth much. Remember, regardless of where we are and what time of day or night it might be, our Father in heaven is always near.

Bible Reading

Father, thank You for Your promise to hear me when I pray, regardless of where I may be. Thank You, In Jesus name. Amen.
