Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Matthew 6:9-10, 12-13 ESV
Forgive us our debts, give us our food and lead us not into temptation are things Jesus taught us to pray every day. I don’t know about you but for me having to constantly ask for God’s help in these areas makes me feel frustrated and weak. But God is not at all frustrated or angry when we sincerely pray. Instead He taught us to pray these things because He is a God who is ready to forgive us every morning, delights in providing for us every day and who knows we need His protection on our journey!

“He is a God who is ready to forgive us every morning…” Praise God! Thanks for this encouraging post.
You’re welcome! I needed it this morning so I thought I would share. Have a blessed day!
Thanks for the encouragement. I find myself praying the same things every day, and I wonder sometimes if God gets sick of it, but deep down I know He doesn’t. It feels good to admit every day that I am utterly dependent on Him – and He is utterly dependable. ❤
