Daily Devotional- Your Will Be Done
“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.” – Matthew 6:7-13
I think too many times in our prayer life we become too stagnant and just keep repeating the same things to God. However, He wants us to come boldly before Him and ask Him what we need because He already knows our needs. We need to welcome His will for us in our life and trust Him in where He is bringing us even when we don’t understand it.
