I Cannot Pray

kneel

I CANNOT SAY
OUR ; if I don’t share God with others and their spiritual needs.

#I CANNOT SAY
FATHER ; if I do not demonstrate this relationship in my daily life.

#I CANNOT SAY
WHO ART IN HEAVEN ; if all my interests and pursuits are in earthly things.

#I CANNOT SAY
HALLOWED BE THY NAME ; if I, who am called by His name am not trusting in His name.

#I CANNOT SAY
THY KINGDOM COME ; if I am unwilling to give up my own sovereignty and accept the righteous reign of God.

#I CANNOT SAY
THY WILL BE DONE ; if I am unwilling or resentful of having it in my life.

#I CANNOT SAY
ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN ; if I am not truly giving myself to His service here and now.

#I CANNOT SAY
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD ; if I am not giving to others or ignoring the needs of others.

#I CANNOT SAY
FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US ; if I continue to harbor a grudge against anyone.

#I CANNOT SAY
LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION ; if I deliberately choose to remain in a situation where I am likely to be tempted.

#I CANNOT SAY
DELIVER US FROM EVIL ; if I am not prepared to fight in the spiritual realm with the weapon of prayer.

#I CANNOT SAY
THINE IS THE KINGDOM ; if I do not give the King (Jesus) the disciplined obedience of a loyal subject.

#I CANNOT SAY
THINE IS THE POWER ; if I fear what my neighbors do or say to me.

#I CANNOT SAY
THINE IS THE GLORY ; if I am seeking my own glory first.

#I CANNOT SAY
FOREVER ; if I am anxious about each day’s events.

#I CANNOT SAY
AMEN ; if i don’t honestly say “cost what it may, this is my prayer.”.

Ref. Matthew 6:9-12
