Teach Us To Pray - Our Father [Ryan Ashley]

Matthew 6:6-15

Ephesians 1:4-5


Joy is the experience of knowing that you are unconditionally loved. Therefore, to pray is to listen to the One who calls you “my beloved daughter,” “my beloved son,” my beloved child.”

Henri Nouwen

 

“Prayer is the only entryway into genuine self-knowledge. It is also the main way we experience deep change—the reordering of our loves. Prayer is how God gives us so many of the unimaginable things he has for us. Indeed, prayer makes it safe for God to give us many of the things we most desire. It is the way we know God, the way we finally treat God as God. Prayer is simply the key to everything we need to do and be in life.” 

Tim Keller

 

“What do I lose when I have a praying life? Control. Independence. What do I gain? Friendship with God. A quiet heart. The living work of God in the hearts of those I love. The ability to roll back the tide of evil. Essentially, I lose my kingdom and get his. I move from being an independent player to a dependent lover. I move from being an orphan to a child of God.” 
Paul E. Miller
