Pray Like This: Matthew 6:9-13

C. Hayden 
As we see the renovation continue here at Central Christian, we are reminded that God is doing new things in us
and through us as we prepare for the ministry the Lord has ahead for us. The most important change we see,
however, is what Jesus does inside of each of us as we follow Him and push into His
purposes. With this in mind, we are going to be launching a new pray group in the
upcoming days and you are invited! We want to gather 50 or more Central Christian
believers to commit to praying for this Church and Church families, our leadership
at CCC, our Pastors and their families, and our Elders. Below is the example Christ gave
us and some thoughts on prayer. Will you join us in this endeavor? Stay tuned & pray
like this:
9 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven , ((Prayer is to be personal & relational, prayer is not to
only be transactional ))
Hallowed be Your name. ((Gazing on God brings praise )) Psalm 100:4 – I will enter His gates with thanksgiving and
His courts with praise.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. ((Blackaby (“Experiencing God”) said “find
out what God is doing and get there )) Align your will with His will.
11 Give us this day our daily bread. ((Ask God for needs. Recognize that God is your Source )) Psalm 23 The Lord is
my Shepherd, I shall not want…
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (( Forgive & be Forgiven )) “If you do not forgive…” Matt
6:14-15. Recognizing your need for God’s grace makes one humble toward others.
13 And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. ((God is our deliverer & Satan seeks to
destroy us thru influence ))
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. ((Father, You alone are God & Jesus you
alone are Lord of All…So we must be vessels of Worship )) John 4:23 – true worshippers worship in Spirit and in
truth…the Father seeks these kind of worshippers.
May God bless you even more!!
Pastor Chris
