Jesus' Model of Prayer

It is called The Lord's Prayer, but really it should be every Christian's prayer.

Matthew 6:9-13

"Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen."

The beginning of the prayer tells us who God is and why He deserves our praise. He is our provider, and gives us all we need to live each day. He grants us forgiveness, and He also expects us to forgive others. He delivers us from sin and Satan.
