The Kitchen Table Devotions: The Game of Life Day 39
Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:9-11
Prayer is going to the head of the table, taking hold of the strongest hands, and leaning on the biggest heart which all belong to God our Father. When asking for the needs and wants in life, go to the One who loves the most. Lean on His heart for us. The One who really loves us and came to show us His love for us. Like writes, “How much more will you heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him (Luke 6:13). Jesus says, “Whatever we ask…” (John 14:13: 15:16) God’s love for us is so great that He will meet the smallest needs. Paul writes, “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21) Go to the head of the table, grab the strongest hands and lean on the biggest heart. God loves us but if we don’t learn to pray we won’t learn to play in His love.
