Exploring the perfection of the Lord’s Prayer
By Charles Johnston:
What is the Perfect Prayer? Any time you speak to God from your heart, and remain in reverent silence to allow Him to speak to you, I’d say that’s a pretty good start.
We sometimes forget that prayer isn’t a one way street, it isn’t giving God a list of demands and then hanging up the phone. We have to remember that prayer isn’t a hostile negotiation, it’s a conversion in the context of a relationship. We have to approach God and speak with Him, not at Him.
But what about those times when we don’t really know what to say, or there’s a longing that we wish to express but just can’t find the right words? For these, and many other situations, I can’t think of a better way to pray than with the words our Savior gave us.
