Word of Encouragement-Pray

February 25th, 2021

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Word of Encouragement is “Pray.”

Author Ray Stedman has said that when you take the whole range of Bible teaching on the subject of prayer, you will find that prayer is simply conversing with God. As the famous hymn declares, “What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!”

Jesus taught us to how to pray in Matthew chapter 6, verse 9.

“Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread,

And forgive us our debts and we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’

Find encouragement in prayer to the God who made us and loves us in the Year of Endurance.
