Reflections of Faith

Gospel: Luke 11:1-4
“ Lord, teach us to pray.”
When the disciples asked this of Jesus, they were probably at a loss for words on how to ask and what to ask from God. This happens to us too, not knowing how and what to say.
Jesus gave them/ us a prayer that was all encompassing: giving glory to God, pleading for a piece of heaven while on earth, pleading for daily food, learn to forgive while asking for forgiveness, and lead them through the straight path to Him.
A prayer so simple a child can say it. As we pray the Our Father, let us consciously say the words clearly, slowly, and feel the meaning of each word sincerely.
