Focus on the Father

“This then is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.” (Matthew 6:9)

Too often, prayer for me is like going to the grocery store. I have things I need, or others need, and I jump right into asking God to hear and respond to my requests. While that is not wrong, I do think that prayer should be more than getting God to do stuff for me. In fact, I think prayer is designed to deepen and develop our relationship with God in a personal way.

That is some of what Jesus teaches us when He says to start our prayer with a focus on God, not ourselves. In prayer we come into the presence of the Creator of the universe, who is also our heavenly Father. As a Father, God will be everything to us that a perfect father should be; a Father who loves, guides, protects and provides.

God is also a holy Father. There is no evil in Him. He always does what is right and good. He does not suffer from selfishness, bad judgment, or arrogance. 

Here is a thought for your prayer life. Next time you pray, start by talking to the Father about the Father. Give Him glory by recounting His greatness, His perfections, His actions and His love. Use your own words to call His name in holy adoration and love for all He has done for you. Get lost in HIS majesty before you drift into your requests.

Question: How well do you know our Father in Heaven?

Challenge: Make prayer more than getting something from God, make it a time to connect with your Father.

Prayer: Father, help learn more about Your greatness when I pray.
