Th Lord’s Prayer

        After giving thanks we begin the great prayer.

        Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name.

        Matthew Henry says that the phrase “Hallowed be thy Name” means that we Praise Jesus. We can pause at this point and praise Jesus for how He fills people and makes their lives better, or praise Him for what He did at the cross.

        We have “All we need” with Jesus. When we pray sincerely, we start to understand that truth.

        As we begin this great prayer our thoughts should be: How can we praise Him? What can we praise Him for?

        The great prayer continues: Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.

        Doing God’s will refers to trying to fulfill our purpose.

        When David was doing what God wanted him to do his prayers were powerful. When he was sitting around doing the wrong things, (well, we know how that ended).

        We learn from David that God wants us to quit because there is a war going on? A battle that we are supposed to be fighting in.

        A good prayer for this is, “Father, take away this spirit of drinking/drugs and help me to care about souls.”
        A good exercise to learn better “Purpose,” habits, is to turn off the TV for a bit and read. If you have been having success in fighting intoxication, the Purpose Driven Life is great. If you are struggling with intoxication, “What The Bible Says About Addiction” is great for purpose and it is great for quitting.
        The only time I am completely free from temptation is when I say: “Jesus, I am going to do exactly what you want me to do today.”
        Study the Lord’s prayer and use it to combat habits.
