The Privilege of Prayer
And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place,
when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord teach us to
pray, as John also taught his disciples.
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for
they love to pray standing in the synagogues that they may be seen of
men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast
shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father
which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread
alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in
heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as
in heaven, so in earth.
Give us day by day our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted
to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
I John 5:14
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any
thing according to his will, he heareth us.
Philippians 4:6, 7
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God, and the
peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts
and minds through Christ Jesus.
