Teach Us To Pray"

Verse Of The Day      Monday, February 19, 2018



Matthew 6:5. “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

9. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11. Give us this day our daily bread.

12. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


A Prayer Starter For The Broken-Hearted

 Psalm 34:18. The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. 

Lord, my heart feels broken.

Life hasn’t turned out the way I expected,

And I feel worn and overwhelmed.

I confess I haven’t followed your will completely,

And my will has not turned out well.

Please forgive me, Lord, and make my life new.

Turn my heart from its self-center path onto

One focused on You.

 I praise you, Lord, for your love that saves me.

Thank you for caring for my soul.

A Prayer Starter For Healing

 Psalm147:3. He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth

up their wounds. 

Thank you lord for healing me.

I came to you in sin, and you cleansed me.

My sore heart found rest in you, and my spiritual

Cuts and bruises became whole under your hand.

 But this world still bruises and breaks me.

Lord when I fall into sin again, it cuts my soul.

Every moment of my life I need your healing touch.

Place your hand on me this day. Lead me not into

Temptation, but deliver me from evil.

 I look forward to the day when you provide your

Complete healing in eternity.

I want to be entirely whole, Lord God.

But until then, I trust you to heal all my hurts.

Each day I come to you for strength.

A Prayer Starter—Eternal Life

John14:2. "In my Father's house are many mansions: if

[it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare

a place for you.

Lord, as I walk through the house in the mornings,

Especially on cold days, I feel the onset of middle

(old) age. I have aches in my back and pains in my

Joints. A look in the mirror assures me that evolution

Is not at work. Rather than becoming a higher order,

My body is falling into disarray.

Lord, I realize you have numbered my days on this

Earth for a good reason. You have prepared for me

An everlasting home with You in heaven.

Thank you Lord, for the promise of eternal life.

I can face the future with hope.

James & Mary Lee Thornton
