The Lord's Prayer - part 1

Matthew 6;9  "After this manner therefore pray ye."

MB 102  "The disciples had been for a short time absent from their Lord, when on their return, they found Him absorbed in communion with God.  Seeming unconscious of their presence, He continued praying aloud.  The Savior's face was irradiated with a celestial brightness.  He seemed to be in the very presence of the Unseen, and there was a living power in His words as of one who spoke with God.
     The hearts of the listening disciples was deeply moved.  They had marked how often he spent long hours in solitude in communion with His Father...It was from hours spend with God that He came forth, morning by morning, to bring the light of heaven to men.  The disciples had come to connect His hours of prayer with the power of His words and works.  Now as they listened to His supplication, their hearts were awed and humbled.  As He ceased praying, it was with a conviction of their own deep need that they exclaimed, 'Lord teach us to pray." Luke 11:1.

My prayer today is, 'Lord teach me how to pray' I need to spend more time in prayer so that I can be more like Him in my words and my deeds.  How about you, I hope you have the same desire.  Grandma Joan
