LETTER TO A BROTHER #20

Dear Brother,
Have you ever wondered how to pray to God? Have you ever felt at a lost for the right words to say to our Father in Heaven when you need his attention in your life? There is an answer. He gave us a simple prayer in the Bible that he hears whenever we say it, as long as it comes from our heart.

Matthew 6:9-15 New Living Translation
9Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. 10May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. 11Give us today the food we need, 12and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. 13And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. 14“If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.

He knows what we need before we ask for it, but He wants us to ask so we understand that we need it. Most of all as you can read from the verses we need to be forgiving and forgiven. Without both of those things happening we get stuck. God does not want us stuck. He wants us free. You can be free.

Sincerely,
Robert
