Prayer to Our Father
What comes to mind when we think about God impacts how we pray and influences what we pray.
When Jesus taught His disciples to pray, He taught them to think of Him as our heavenly Father. Matthew 6:9 “You should pray like this: ‘Our Father in Heaven, Your name be honored as holy.’” Luke 11:2: “Whenever you pray, say: ‘Father, Your name be honored as holy.’”
“Father” sums up the entire basic relationship of the believer in Christ with God. When we come to the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer of the world, we are to address him as “Father.”
