Matthew 6:5-14 New International Version (NIV)Prayer5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 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.
BELIEVE AND ACTION ~
These two works go together and can make such a huge difference in our lives. Believing God is able to handle our today and living in freedom of our actions. We might not be able to do anything about yesterdays of life, but we certainly can do something about this beautiful day God has given us. We never know what might happen and having a trust in God changes our outlook of things.
Purpose this a good day. Be kind to yourself and others. Living in a world of craziness and keeping your mindset to positive is important. Remember, you make a difference and important. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
