Pray In The Spirit, As Christ Did
“The Lord’s Prayer shows us how to pray in a way that honors the purpose of prayer. It moves us toward abiding in Christ, toward becoming aware of His life in us, with its heavenly rhythm and purpose. First things and second things begin to sort themselves out, and we pray differently. We want different things. We want what God wants. And we pray in the Spirit, as Christ did.”
Dr. Larry Crabb, The PAPA Prayer, Page 48
Questions for Reflection:
• Take some time to pray the Lord’s prayer, slowly, considering each part of it.
• What stirs in your heart as you do this?
• How does this prayer draw you away from making self-focused demands on God and invite you into resting in God?
