"And When You Pray" - A Preferred Pattern for Prayer

Matthew 6:9-13

Initiate in Praise

Our father in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,

Invite Divine Power

Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,

Invoke Divine Priorities

On earth as it is in heaven

Involve Divine Provision

Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.

Impose the Kingdom of God

And do not lead us into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one,
for yours is the kingdom and the power
And the glory forever,

Amen
