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 men.  Matthew 6:1

The other day I wanted to pray and needed to pray the Lord’s Prayer.  Sadly I could only remember a few lines of the only perfect prayer in the world.  It was then I said to self I would recite the Lord’s Prayer daily until I learn it again.  So I invite those of you that follow Christ to walk with me as I relearn a prayer that will be my foundation for conversing with God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and heaven.

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.  Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.  Matthew 6:9 – 13
