Matthew 6:9-15
RS 9-3


We mistake the purpose of prayer when we interpret it as little more than a means of persuading God to grant our petitions. This is why when Jesus instructs us how to pray, He has us pray “thy will be done” before we ever ask for our daily bread. When we pray as Jesus taught, we find that the true purpose of prayer is to get God Himself, not merely to get God’s gifts.

Matthew 6:9–15

Turning our thoughts and feelings to God through prayer is very important, because it’s not just about asking for stuff, but really putting God right at the heart of our lives. The Lord’s Prayer shows us to love and put God first before we talk about our everyday needs, and to let God’s plan happen for true happiness. The Bible and stories from real people are great at showing these ideas.
