The Lord's Prayer is an example of how the Lord wants us to pray. Have you listened to the prayers of others these days? Are we selfish?

 

The Lord’s Prayer
 
Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, THY will be done in earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts as WE forgive OUR debtors.
And lead us NOT unto temptation, but deliver us from all evil;
For THINE is the Kingdom and the Power and the GLORY FOREVER ...
                Amen
 
Who are we to question how Christ taught us to pray?
Many times we forget our place and do not ASK, but DEMAND, answers.
HE who knows the END from the BEGINNING, knows every detail about everything:
our names, health, wealth, needs and desires. 
Do we acknowledge HIS POWER with praise ... first and foremost?
Do we submit to HIS will coming FIRST always?
Do we THANK Him for our lives, the lives of those whom we love, the dreams that have been fulfilled, the numerous DAILY blessings—food, shelter, health, HIM?
Do we remember to daily ask for FORGIVENESS? 
Each day temptation arises in various ways and, some seemingly innocent, may sway even the most faithful ... without God’s continued guidance.
What we ask, when we ask it, is it necessary for GOD’S glory? What is God's plan? Do we accept that His view of the outcome may be different than ours?
 
When my only son, Doug, was missing in December 1992, my family and I attended services at a Franciscan monastery on Christmas Eve. The services were in Latin ...
a language which none of us were familiar with.
I, nonetheless, found comfort in the House of the Lord.
A friar, who had first conversed with my husband, quietly whispered,
“Your son is in heaven with the Lord.”
“No,” I retorted, “he is missing, not dead.”
“You pray for the impossible. The deed has been done. Your faith is fragile.
When you can accept ‘what IS’ ... God will show them where to find your son.”
He then instructed me to pray ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ over and over until,
in my mind and heart, I could accept the TRUTH. 
“Death is but the end of the circle of Life, fear it not. God’s will is LIFE eternal!”
I prayed earnestly, tearfully, and on Feb. 4, 1993 detectives found Doug’s body in the back yard of his fiancées ‘other beau’.
Living WITH God, FOR God, isn't easy but I ALWAYS pray for everything and everyone with the phrase: THY WILL be done. 
I accept that which I cannot change, strive to change that which I can/should and pray for HIS wisdom, strength and guidance to help me differentiate between the two.
