In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
Recommended Reading: Matthew 6:8-13
As Ebola ravaged Africa in 2014, Dr. Rick Sacra was working with SIM, a Christian mission organization, at a clinic in Liberia. When he contracted the disease, the suffering fell on him like an anvil. Lying alone, one set of thoughts flooded his mind. “I hung on to the Lord’s Prayer like a drowning man,” he said. “I prayed through that prayer many times a day and just wept through it most of the time.” Thankfully, Dr. Sacra recovered, but with a newfound appreciation for words he had learned by heart.
On a mountainside in Galilee, Jesus offered these words as a model prayer. Throughout history, millions of children have learned this prayer, even as young as four or five. But what about today? How many children are learning this wonderful prayer by heart?
Look around for a way to teach this simple prayer to a child. In coming years, they will need every part of it. It’s how Jesus taught us to pray.
Any concern too small to be turned into prayer is too small to be made into a burden.
