Good afternoon all,

One of the most wonderful aspects of the Christian faith is the relationship that Jesus calls us into. We have a relationship with God the Father through Jesus’ death on the cross for us. A powerful marker of this relationship is that God now calls us to pray to Him, to speak with Him. That’s pretty insane if you think about it. We get to talk to God. Jesus instructed His disciples to do this.

Matthew 6:9–13 (ESV) — 9 Pray then like this: “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 this day 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 evil.

“Our Father in Heaven”, what a privilege to be able to say that and know it’s true. What an amazing understanding that we can pray to the Lord and He delights in our prayer. So why not pray? Why not talk to the Lord and have our relationship grow with Him?
