Senior Pastor’s Devotional
Day 26 Movement Control Order – “Strategic Psalm 91 Watch”
The Lord’s Prayer.
“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.
And 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, the power and the glory forever and ever.
We have studied and prayed through the Lord’s Prayer quite comprehensively. Now we want to slowly sense how the Lord wants us to apply it.
1. Seek to MEMORISE the Lord’s Prayer.
– You will then learn to pray comprehensively as you are guided by each point. By this, we move away from self centered prayer to Holy Spirit guided praying.
2. Keep building and establish your RELATIONSHIP with your Heavenly Father.
-The Lord’s Prayer is not a method. It is to help us to establish the relationship with Father God. Once the relationship is established, your prayer will be natural and not methodical.
You will not only have SET TIMES of prayer – which most of us are familiar with – but you will have a RELATIONSHIP PRAYER LIFE – meaning – you can naturally talk to Father God any moment of the day. This is what it means by ‘pray unceasingly” – talking to Father God while you are driving; cooking; walking and even while working or studying.
3. With the relationship – you will then build a TRUST.
A trust that Father God has the best interest of his children in His heart.
You will then be able to trust His Will and when you don’t get certain things – you will not be too disappointed, but trusting that Father knows what is best and in His own divine timing He will act.
Question:- What was one experience in your life that has helped you to experience the love of Father God? Write it down because this will become your ‘memorial stone’ and to spur you on to build that relationship deeper.
Will this kind of relationship become the ‘new normal’ in the time to come?
