Pray the Lord’s Prayer Obediently

Pray the Lord’s Prayer Obediently

I once shared on this platform about the Jews that walked into the gas chamber of Auschwitz concentration camp uttering the Lord’s prayer. The words offered them hope, consolation and strength in the midst of the genocide and mass atrocities. It was also the same prayer Dr. Rick Sacra turned to in an Ebola ravaged country in 2014.  Dr.  Sacra was working with SIM, a Christian mission organization, at a clinic in Liberia. When he contracted the deadly disease, the suffering fell on him like an anvil. Lying alone, one set of thoughts flooded his mind. “I hung on to the Lord’s Prayer like a drowning man,” he said. “I prayed through that prayer many times a day and just wept through it most of the time.” Thankfully, he recovered, but with a newfound appreciation for words he had learned by heart. How often do you ‘pray’ the Lord’s prayer? You should ‘pray’ it every day. Pray it ‘obediently’ like Christ taught His disciples on a mountainside in Galilee while at the same time use the words as a model prayer.

Don’t forget to remember prayer causes things to happen that would not happen if you didn’t pray. Christine Caine
