This is how you are to pray

March 7, 2017 6:00 am

“This is how you are to pray: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” (MT 9: 6-13)

This is one of the most important prayers: “Our Father who art in heaven.” Too often reduced to Mass or as a part of the Rosary, this prayer deserves all our attention because this is the prayer, which Our Lord used to pray. He was asked how to pray, and that was His answer. We can always start with this prayer, especially when we don’t know how to pray or for what to pray.

“One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
