Children's Devotion on how we should pray
When we pray, we need to keep it sincere and
natural. It should be part of who we are - our
whole relationship with God.
This pattern of praying that Jesus has given here
is known as the Lord's Prayer. It is just a model
of how we should pray. Jesus never meant it to
be something we say religiously – just repeating
these words. I suppose we could see this as a
format on how to pray starting with praising our
Heavenly Father, committing to Him our daily needs,
forgiving others and asking for forgiveness (if it
is needed), deliverance from temptation.
Prayer should be a natural part of our lifestyle.
Just like talking with a friend. We need to develop
a prayer life that is a moment-by-moment
relationship with God.
Prayer is not some rigid, religious act done every
now and then, but conversation with God anywhere,
anytime. When we're happy, or feeling sad, or
angry, or lonely – no matter how we're feeling
we should talk to God.
So as you go about your day, whether it be doing
the boring, ordinary things, or going off to school,
playing sports – whatever you do, remember you
can talk to God.
Lord, may I walk with you
Much closer, in every way –
To talk with you as my closest friend
As I go about my day.
