#NationalDayofPrayer : My Morning Meditation 

Prayer: widely discussed, pondered, even argued about.  So, being the “National Day of Prayer”, I’d like to take a look at the prayer in Matthew 6:9-13.  First, let’s look at what God’s Word says about prayer:

This verse may seem harsh, if misunderstood.  For example- my first impression is to think “oh, no! I shouldn’t pray in public!” Or “oh, no! I need to stop begging so much!”  These thoughts are incorrect translations on my part.  Truly, we are to pray with out ceasing. It’s to be a relationship with our Lord.  The notes in my NIV study bible state: “Jesus’ followers are not to make a show of their praying, in contrast to the ‘hypocrites’ (v.5).  To me this means I need to pray wherever I am called to pray and to be void of pride when doing it. Simply talking to my Father, honestly and openly. He knows our hearts, so there’s nothing to hide.

The next segment of verses from Mattthew 6 are Jesus’ instructions to his followers: 

As I head out into the world this morning, my prayers and meditions will continue.  They won’t be perfect, they may not even make sense at times.  The point is to talk to our Father in all that we do.  I have one more verse to share which has been on my mind a lot and reminds me of who He is and Who I am to Him:

“When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, ‘The LORD is with you, mighty warrior.” (Judges 6:12)


I Pray He is also with you,

  1. I really like what you said about needing to talk to Him in all that we do. It is really important not just to come to Him when we need something but also to consult Him as part of our daily decision making.


    • You point out a very important truth! I’ve experienced the self inflicted consequences of loosening my connection with God. Knowing the confusion, loneliness and vulnerability that comes with that separation from Him has me holding on to Him for dear life (eternal.)
