6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 6:6-15
Heavenly Father, I confess that I tried to control my life and dud not give You full reign. God, I confess that I tried to handle things that You told me to release to You.
But, God, I thank You for redemption. I thank You for always holding me up. I thank You for purifying my mind, body, and Spirit to do what You would have me to do. Thank You for giving me joy in sorrow. Thank You for protecting me. Thank You for salvation and for discipline.
God, I ask that You help me to forgive those who betray me. I bind, rebuke, and destroy every curse and problem that keeps me from loving people in the way Your Word has called me to love them. I pray, Lord God, that You teach me to be selfless. Teach me how to walk in discernment and to exercise it with wisdom. I thank You for all these things. It is so by faith, and by faith so it is. In Jesus Name, Amen.
