Set Your Clock One Hour Ahead on Saturday Night

unless you are a perfectionist then set it ahead

at 2AM on Sunday morning


In Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 6, Jesus’ early followers said, “Lord, teach us to pray.” Jesus could have said, “I thought you’d never ask.”

Here’s the preface to his coaching session: “…when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private…when you pray, don’t babble on and on…merely repeating…words again and again. Pray like this:

‘Heavenly Father, hallowed (highly honored) be your name…your will be done…”

At your prayer time each day:

Declare His greatness

Surrender your will

Think about it:

How did you learn to pray? Was it modeled for you?

Were you taught specific prayers as a child?


Have you ever attempted to pray your way out of a situation you behaved your way into?


Have you ever attempted to bargain with God?

What about now? Do you pray? Where do you pray?

When do you pray? Do you have any reservations about, “Thy will be done?”


- From Andy Stanley’s teaching series, “Grown-Up Prayers.”
