When you pray…

1. Don’t be like a Hypocrite-praying simply for public attention or to impress others.

2. Don’t be like a Heathen-insincere, wordy prayers with no desire to know or follow God.

When you pray…
1. Get alone.
2. Talk to God.

Pray then like this…

Praise Him—“Our Father in Heaven” v.9
This first petition paints two complimentary images:God as personal and God as powerful.

“Our Father”gives us the reason, confidence and undeniable hope that God will accept our requests and listen to our prayers.This Father/Child relationship(the key to our access to God) is available through Christ.

Hebrews 10:19-22
“Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”

“In Heaven” reminds us of the amazing truth that God is all-powerful!

What does this mean?
1. He is greater than his creation.
2. He is the true God of Heaven and earth.
3. There is no place where his power is not present.

“Hallowed be your Name” v.9

What does this mean?
1. God is holy!
2. The name of God is holy!

How does this affect our prayers?
As we acknowledge and express his holiness and the glory due his name because He is good, righteous, perfect and true then we confess through faith that all his works, including his answers to our prayers, are right, good and true.

Seek Him— “Your Kingdom Come, your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven” v.10

How does that affect our prayers?
1. A personal willingness and commitment to God’s will is required for power-filled, life changing prayer.
2. We should pray for God to invade all areas of our lives according to his will not ours.

Ask Him— “Give us this day our daily bread” v.11

How does that affect our prayer life?
1. We should pray with greater confidence because God is the greatest giver.
2. We shouldn’t feel guilty asking for his divine help, he instructs us to ask him to “give us.

Matthew 7:7-8
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”

Trust Him— “Forgive us our debts, as we...” v.12

Matthew 6:14-15
"For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Follow Him— “And lead us not into temptation…” v.13

How does that affect our prayer life?
1. Pray for strength when temptation comes.
2. Pray that we will see clearly the way out of trouble when temptation comes our way.

1 Corinthians 10:13
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”

3. Pray for divine protection.
