In my morning prayer time for the last few months I have enjoyed praying the Lord's Prayer. When praying the Lord's Prayer I have meditated as I recited each part to extract meaning and relevance to my life. I find when I pray scripture like this it opens up greater meaning to my life and his word working in my life.
Yeshua makes a statement about this prayer in that we are to pray like this. Like what ? Then he quotes what is now known as the Lord's Prayer.
Luke 11:1-4 KJV - And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. 2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3 Give us day by day our daily bread. 4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
The author relates the Amidah to the Lord's prayer and that quickened in my spirit. The relationship of the words is amazing. I recommend reading the article and his version of the Amidah prayer. The author breaks up the Amidah into sections and then gives each section a title. So as you pray through the prayer you can pause and add in things. Like under the section for healing you can put in those names of ones who need healing. Under the section for repentance you can search your heart. I really had a break through with this and I wanted to share.
