Jesus possesses all the attributes of God in the same sense and to the same extent as the Father. The fullness of deity dwells in the human Jesus.
We are to honour, worship, pray to, sing to, serve, believe in, and love Jesus in the same way and to the same extent that we love God.
All the power and glory belong to God. It will make a difference in our lives and in our churches if we become people who pray as Jesus taught.
God allows circumstances into our lives to grow our faith. Satan will tempt us in those circumstances to turn away from God.
We must come to God and accept his forgiveness for our sins. As a result, we must be willing to offer forgiveness and mercy to others.
We are to pray for our daily bread. These are the everyday physical and material needs we have. This prayer teaches us to daily depend upon God.
Some prayers are very difficult to pray. To ask for God’s will to be done is to ask that his will prevail over my will. It is turning control over to God.
We wait for Jesus to return and establish his kingdom on earth. Until that time are to be committed to living out the values of God’s kingdom.
The first petition in the Lord’s Prayer, “Hallowed be your name,” is about the glory of God, and that is the place where prayer must begin.
Our Father in heaven. We pray in community with others. We pray to our father, the one who cares and who has the power to help us.
