Frequently Asked Questions
P. S. Wilmot
Are all prayers to be based on the Lord's prayer?
The Lord's Prayer, or The Prayer, as it is sometimes called, is a model prayer.
The prayer is a model prayer, or a pattern for our prayer, meaning we pray in like manners, but not necessarily word by word as it is given. Though it be not an error to repeat it as it was given.
It is a prayer addressed to God, prayed by the believer. Hence, the opening of the prayer is thus rendered, Father. God is God unto all, the believer and the unbeliever. However, God is a Father only to a believer.
A believer is not a title earned through association and deeds, but by faith, one becomes a believer. Therefore, The Prayer and all prayers that the believer prays ought to be performed through faith.
As the believer began his or her prayer, by acknowledging God as their Father, in essence, that believer has humble themselves in the presence of God as a child to its father.
Thereby, God as a Father acknowledges the believer as a child. As a child to a father, it is the Father’s uttermost responsibility to hearken, provide, nourish and rightfully establish and protect His child.
Like all communication, however, there must be a time to speak and a time to listen.
Prayer let you speak with God. Reading the Bible helps you listen to Him, by learning His language.
Amen, I know The Prayer is a good foundation
Hope to see a full explanation on the entire Prayer ☺
