How To Pray: The Lord's Prayer



It occurred to me that I should make a prayer template on how to pray, since I wrote an article criticizing how people pray incorrectly.  The Lord's prayer can be found below: the disciples came to Jesus and asked Jesus, what was the correct way to pray, and below is what Jesus told them.



[Matthew 6:9-13]
King James Version (KJV)

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Now I will add in some of my own words as an example of how the prayer can be expounded upon, to suit any needs that one has in life.

9 Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  Jehovah  God.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.  Give us peace, love, a sound mind, health & strength.  Blessings in our occupations.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  Forgive me for lying, fornication, forgive the pride of my heart, laziness, and wasting of time and gifts.  
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: Deliver me from Satan and his demons, from powers and principalities, I bind them in Jesus name; in Jesus name I bind all evil that comes against me and rebuke it to hell.  Deliver me from; witchcraft, jinxes, haters of God, sickness, death, and the workers of iniquity.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

This is just a start, you have to experiment with it and curtail this template to suit your needs.

Also, don't worry if you can't find the right words sometimes; the bible says that the holy spirit prays for us also because we don't know what to ask for sometimes.  [Romans 8:26].
