Here are two short stories on prayer that caught my eye the other day.
As little Deborah sat down to eat dinner with her parents she instinctively reached for her fork. “Please hold on,” her father replied. “We haven’t
said grace yet.” This exasperated the girl, who was tired and hungry. “Daddy,” she said with a sigh, “why can’t we just pray once a week? Why
do we have to ask for our daily bread every day?”
Her older brother, wiser and eager to set her straight, weighed in before the dad could answer. “You don’t think we want stale bread, do you?” he
said.
Inadvertently, that fellow was confirming the importance of regular prayer. See if the next story hits home.
Little four year old Melinda’s favorite story was “The Three Little Pigs” which she asked her mom or dad to read every single night before bed.
They gladly obliged, but after several months, her father got a bright idea. He recorded the story on tape and told her to simply press “play” before
jumping under the covers.
She resisted.
“But, honey,” her daddy told her, “you can still hear it.”
“Yes,” she replied, “but I can’t sit in its lap.”
Amazingly, God the Father is eager to spend time with us. However, the only way we can experience conversation and communion
with Him is through personal and corporate prayer.
Sometimes we pray…usually it happens after some tragedy or when we need something badly. The Bible tells us to do so…It says,
“Pray always” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Sometimes we even pray for others. Sometimes those prayers, prayers for others, are hard. We
ask, “What should I say? Will my prayer be proper and pleasing to God?”
I once heard a minister suggest that the Lord’s Prayer is a helpful way to pray rightly for others. It is, after all, a prayer from Jesus,
God’s Son, so it should be OK with His Father and ours. So, think of someone, and pray…
“Our Father,” not “my Father.” We’re all in this together so think of someone beside yourself when you pray. “Our Father who art
in heaven.” Earthly fathers disappoint us, everyone does. “In heaven” means He’s able to do far more than any earthly person we’ve
ever had any experience with.
“Hallowed be Thy Name.” God’s name is all He’s revealed to us about Himself, that He’s Triune, Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier,
all that’s in the Creed. May the person for whom I pray treasure everything God has revealed about Himself.
“Thy Kingdom come.” God must be ruler over all things. Here you pray that God’s grace and truth rule in the life of the one for
whom you intercede.
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” God ultimately gets His way; will you let Him have His way with you? Here you
pray your person will say with Jesus, “Not my will but Thine be done.”
“Give us this day our daily bread.” We pray God give them the necessary physical things for life, home and health, work and
sufficient wealth.
“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” Not forgiving as God in Jesus has forgiven you
invites resentment and bitterness into a relationship.
“Lead us not into temptation.” Don’t let them give in to sin, but “deliver us from evil.” Protect them from harm to body and
soul and finally bring them to heaven.
Finally “Amen:” a word of confidence God has heard your prayer and will act for that dear one for whom you prayed.
Prayer…something for always.
