It’s Monday night, and time for Don’s next installment of this great study. Blessings and enjoy!
Sitting at the Feet of Yeshua
We have been studying the Disciple’s Prayer found in Matthew 6. We learned that the first three petitions have to do with God and His Glory. We learned that when we pray, we are to worship Father God for who He is and exalt His name. We learned to pray for His will to saturate our life, our family, our congregation, our community, our region, our state, our nation, and the world.
The second part of the prayer, which deals with our needs and our necessities, is a marvelous unity. In these three brief petitions, we are taught to lay the present, the past, and the future before the footstool of the grace of God.
Not only is this a prayer, which brings the whole of life to the presence of God; it is also a prayer, which brings the whole of God to our lives. When we ask for bread to sustain our earthly lives, that request immediately directs our thoughts to God the Father, the Creator and the Sustainer of all life. When we ask for forgiveness, that request immediately directs our thoughts to God the Son, Yeshua our Savior and Redeemer. When we ask for help for future times of testing, that request immediately directs our thoughts to God the Ruach HaKodesh, the Comforter, the Strengthener, the Illuminator, the Guide and the Guardian of our way…..read the rest of the post here: The Disciple’s Prayer ~ Part 4
