When I have my morning devotion with God, I always start with the Lord’s Prayer. The reason I start with the Lord’s Prayer is because it sets the tone and the atmosphere for the Holy Spirit to speak to my heart clearly.
I recommend reading the 6th chapter of Matthew in its entirety. The Lord’s Prayer can be found in verses 9-13.
This is how I dissect, and make personal, the prayer that Jesus told us to pray.
Our Father, who are in heaven, hallowed (and holy) is your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth (and in my life) as it is in heaven. (Father allow my life to come into alignment with your Word as you have decreed and declared it in heaven).
Give us, this day, our daily bread (Father, I know that everything I need today, You have already provided. I know that at your table is the fullness of Joy, Peace, Prosperity, Safety, and Wholeness).
Forgive us, as we forgive those who have sinned against us (in thought, word and deed).
Lead us not into temptation, but deliever us from evil (Father, deliver me from ANYTHING that would take me away from your presence. Protect me from all of the enemy’s plans, schemes, and hidden agendas against me and my family. Help me to see anything that may cause me to stumble).
For Your’s (Alone God) is the Kingdom, The Power, and the Glory, Amen.
