From Matthew 6:9-13 (credit to King James Version Bible):
After this manner therefore pray ye:
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
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.
Commentary: This is a short prayer, although it is a powerful prayer to pray daily. Remember not to pray this prayer as a replacement to your prayer life. Communion with GOD is necessary, including quality prayers that led by the Spirit completely and out of your heartfelt thoughts, as though you are talking to a best friend; sharing your ups and lows in your daily life.
Take a note at this prayer’s format, it begins and ends with thanksgiving. We can follow the format of this prayer, and because we should give thanks in all things (1 Thessalonians 5:18). There is one thing about asking for forgiveness, it appears near the end of this prayer. Asking for forgiveness from GOD for our sins is a must, but we should not have the one above to replace our confession. Rather, we should have our own prayer that confess all sins we have committed against GOD and ask for forgiveness. (1 John 1:9) I would want to set this as first priority in all my prayers so that I would come clean before the LORD. See 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Summarize the format in 7 parts can be like this: 1) Dear GOD/Dear Heavenly Father/Dear Abba Father/etc. 2) Give thanks 3) Acknowledge that HIS will to be done through you and surrender your everything to GOD 4) Supplication: Ask for divine protection, complete guidance of the HOLY SPIRIT to guide us into HIS perfect plan and will to have a right standing with GOD, praying for the lost souls, surrender all before HIM; asking help for all your problems either big or small…etc. 5) Confess sins and ask for forgiveness over sins committed including unknown sins. Cover yourself in the blood of CHRIST. Ask where you are not right with GOD. Examine your heart whether you have unforgiveness in your heart. You must forgive all to come clean before The LORD. 6) Ask for the complete filling of the HOLY SPIRIT to be an overcomer of all sins 7) Give thanks, ending with “Amen” that means “So be it”.
