The Lord’s Prayer Journal™ has taken The Lord’s Prayer and broken it down into snippets in order to prompt you during your prayer times, to help you remember how to pray as Jesus Christ taught us.
The Lord’s Prayer Journal gently prompts you to:
Praise your Heavenly Father
Thank God for all your bountiful blessings
Surrender your will to the Holy Spirit
Pray for others
Ask God for your daily bread
Request forgiveness of our sins
Forgive the sins and hurts of others
Ask the Holy Spirit for protection
Acknowledge God and all His Power and Glory
Thank Heavens we are not the first to struggle with how to pray. The disciples did too and they spent 24/7 with Jesus! This is fortunate for us as a Christian, because we can go to our Bible and read The Lord’s Prayer and learn how to pray. But oh, “if it were only that easy,” you say! I say, “I know exactly what you mean.”
If you are at all like me, you have always wanted a more meaningful way of communicating with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Jesus calls us to spend time in prayer, but how do you know what or how to pray? Are we suppose to utter a prayer for healing . . . or recite healing scriptures . . . or use a daily devotional. . . or maybe subscribe to the Bible Verse of the Day? What is the right way to pray?
First, let me assure you there is no right or wrong way to pray. Jesus takes us just as we are. God is just thrilled that we want to spend time with Him! And, He is even more excited that we desire a deeper relationship. Some people do use daily devotionals (I use 2), some read daily scripture (I try to every day) , and others say a verbal prayer (I do that to). But, I still wanted to delve deeper which is how I came up with The Lord’s Prayer Journal. I wanted some permanence. I wanted to be able to look back at where I had been and see where God had taken me.
