Prayer’s Focus

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “Jesus teaches what to focus on in our prayers and encourages us to approach God with a humble heart.”

Praying with humble heart

Focusing on God

His name, kingdom, and will

Comforting, His rod

 

Lauding His Holiness

Kneeling at Lord’s feet

“Hallowed be your name” rings

Praying on His beat

 

Praying in reverence

Submitting to God

“Your kingdom come” proclaims

Lifting sin’s facade

 

Knowing God’s way is best

Trusting faithfulness

“Your will be done” shares grace

Praying, God shall bless

From Matthew 6:9-10:  “Pray then in this way:  Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.  Your kingdom come.  Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

The more reverence we have for the Word of God, the more joy we shall find in it.

From Isaiah 40:8:  “The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand forever.”

There are times when to speak is to violate the moment–when silence represents the highest respect.  The word for such times is reverence.

From Psalm 46:10:  “Be still, and know that I am God!  I am exalted in the earth.”
