How Jesus Said To Pray
The word pray comes from the Old French word preier, which means to ask. To pray is to communicate with God through words and/or thoughts.
Many people around the world believe in a divine being or beings who can be approached for assistance, for example, in terms of health, prosperity, and in general, happiness.
Some of these believers use specific words or phrases to address this being or beings, which can vary depending on culture. For example, Hindus use a single word to address their deity, while Muslims typically use a series of phrases that include the name of their god.
While there are no set rules on how to pray, many people around the world pray in a similar way. They may face a specific direction (for example, toward Mecca), they may use certain words or phrases (for example, the Jesus Prayer), or they may perform specific gestures (for example, bowing).
Thy kingdom come
“Thy kingdom come” is one of the most common Jesus prayer phrases. It literally means “come into existence your kingdom.”
In the New Testament, Jesus tells a story about a woman who sacrifices a little money every day. Eventually, she has enough money to buy what she wants-but by then, it is too late. (See Luke 17:10–11.)
He says that we should pray daily for his kingdom to come-that we should pray for the coming of his rule and for him to give us what he wants for us: forgiveness and peace.
We can do this in any way that feels comfortable to us-it does not have to be formal or traditional. We can pray out loud, but if that feels awkward, then just think it!
It can be hard to remember all these prayers, so we made a book with all of them in it so that you can pick up a copy at your local church or bookstore.
Thy will be done
“Thy will be done” is a common statement that Jesus said to pray. Many people believe that you should always pray “thy will be done” because then God’s will is done, not our own.
This theory comes from the idea that if you pray for something, and God gives you that thing, it was God’s will and not yours.
However, this theory fails to recognize the importance of the word “thy” in this phrase. By saying “thy will be done,” Jesus was emphasizing the fact that God has a will—a plan he has already decided on.
By telling us to pray this way, he is emphasizing the fact that we should submit to his will—whether or not we get what we want. Praying in this manner reminds us of who is in charge.
Give us this day our daily bread
The first part of the Lord’s Prayer that Jesus gave us to pray is called the preface. In the preface, we ask God to give us what we need.
Specifically, we ask God to give us “our daily bread,” which is a very basic request. We don’t ask for diamond-encrusted loaves of bread or even gluten-free rolls; we simply ask for enough bread to survive until tomorrow.
This part of the prayer reminds us that even the simplest things can be gifts from God. We do not deserve everything that we have; God gives us many things freely.
The second part of the Lord’s Prayer is called the body. In this part, we make specific requests of God.
Forgive us our sins
There are several prayers that Jesus himself said to pray. One of them is the Lord’s Prayer, which is commonly referred to as the “Our Father” prayer.
This prayer includes the statement “Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.” This is a very important part of the prayer, and it emphasizes one of the most important lessons Jesus taught: Forgiveness.
He emphasized the importance of forgiveness because, without it, there can be no true happiness or peace. When you hold a grudge or resentment against someone, you are not at peace and you are not happy.
Only through forgiveness can you let go of that resentment and hurt and experience true happiness and peace. Forgiveness is also an important part of praying The Lord’s Prayer correctly.
Lead us not into temptation
This is another very common verse that many people refer to when praying. Many pray this verse as a way to protect themselves and others from being tempted by something or someone.
However, this is not what this verse is referring to. The word temptation in this verse is the Greek word peirasmos, which means trial, test, or effort.
Jesus is not saying to keep us out of trials or tests, but rather He is saying that when we face a trial or test, we should rely on Him and His strength instead of our own.
Temptations are going to come no matter what, and the only way to overcome them is by relying on God and His strength (which is always sufficient).
But deliver us from evil
This is a universal prayer that all Christians should pray, and all people should pray. We are called to be a beacon of light in this dark world, and part of that light is calling the lost to Christ.
You may ask, how do I do that? How can I bring someone to Jesus if they are not seeking him or her? The answer: pray!
Pray that God would draw people to himself through whatever means he chooses. Pray that he would use you as a tool to bring him into people’s lives.
We cannot depend on our own strength to bring others to Christ, but we can depend on God’s strength through prayer. Nurture this prayer with the knowledge of how important it is for bringing others to Christ.
Holy Grail found?
In a major religious development, researchers at Griffith University in Australia announced that they had found the oldest known version of Jesus’s iconic prayer.
The prayer, referred to as the Lord’s Prayer, has been recited for centuries. It is well-known for its recognizable opening line: “Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
According to The Guardian, the researchers discovered the 1st century AD “Sheppard Prayer” in a Coptic papyrus manuscript. The text was written in ancient Greek, but uses terms familiar with Egyptian religions at the time.
Dr. James Walker, a professor of early Christian studies at the University of Oxford and a specialist in Coptic manuscripts, confirmed that the manuscript was an authentic ancient text. He added that it was likely based on even earlier texts.
This finding could help experts gain new insights into early Christian practices and beliefs regarding prayer. According to The Independent, experts believe that this newly discovered prayer could have been recited in houses rather than churches during this period.
