“Our Father who art in heaven.....”
The only prayer Jesus taught His disciples, a very simple complete perfect prayer.
It is a prayer so simple yet it encompasses all of our needs. Sometimes when we pray, we feel we need to use so many elaborate words and repeat our requests over and over again. God invites us to bring our needs to Him simply and directly. God knows what we need before we ask.
Let us meditate on the words, pray over it, and draw wisdom from it. Notice that the prayer does not only plead for our personal needs, and ask for forgiveness of our sins, but that of others too.
Mama Mary, guide us that we may be faithful in our journey to God.
