P.R.A.Y.

Tragedy often prompts us to our knees. We don’t even know what to say, but the Spirit intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. (Romans 8:26)

I wholeheartedly believe that prayer is the best and most powerful thing that a Christian can do, because it expresses a complete dependence on the best and most powerful thing God can do.

As I reflect on these words… “Lord, teach us to pray.”, He reminds me of an acronym He gave me years ago…

P.R.A.Y.

“When you pray, say:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed (Holy, revered, sacred) be Your name…”

P is for Praise.

“…And forgive us our sins…”

R is for Repent.

“…Give us day by day our daily bread…
…deliver us from the evil one.”

A is for Ask.

“…Your will be done…”

Y is for yield.

P.R.A.Y.

PRAISE – REPENT – ASK – YIELD
