INTRO TO SECTIONS // THE LORD’S PRAYER
The Lord’s Prayer is often recited in churches or at religious events, but there’s so much more to this prayer. Jesus provided this model as an outline to teach us how to pray in a way that connects us to God, aligns our priorities with His, and helps us live dependently on Him. This model takes us through each part of The Lord’s Prayer, showing us how to pray the way Jesus instructed.
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray…” LUKE 11:1
“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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” MATTHEW 6:9-13 NKJV
DAY 7 | EXPRESS FAITH IN GOD’S ABILITY
“For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever.”
God is more than able to move in every situation, and ending our prayer time claiming His authority and power focuses our minds on the truth and hope of who He is and what He can do. Real spiritual breakthroughs aren’t achieved without prayer. Prayer is necessary to weaken our opposition and see the victory. Our God can and will do the impossible to show his glory and work for our good. Nothing is impossible with God!
“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You.” JEREMIAH 32:17
Remind yourself of God’s limitless power and then return to praising Him and declaring your faith in Him:
“Yours is the Kingdom” – all authority belongs to You
“Yours is the Power” – all mightiness flows from You
“Yours is the Glory” – Your victory will be complete
“Father God, nothing is too hard for You! Through your great power, all things are possible. All authority is yours, all might is yours, and I know that your victory will be complete. You are amazing, and I worship you. I praise you for your power and presence in my life. You are my God, and you are worthy of all praise.”
Today pray for the nation of Haiti. We know God has the power and authority to do all things. Pray for an awakening of God’s people in the country of Haiti.
