This month’s lesson is about the Lord’s Prayer!

Communication is important in all our relationships, so it should be no surprise that prayer is one of the most important parts of our relationship with God.  You’d think talking to God would be harder or more complicated than it is, but God gave us five verses to show us how to do it right.

The Lord’s prayer is a reminder to us that God is in charge of everything and provides everything we need, from food to forgiveness.

Do you like it when someone calls you just to talk to you? Most people do! God feels the same way. He loves it when you spend time talking to him.

God wants you to talk to him all the time, not just when you have some extra time or in emergencies. Don’t feel guilty if you can’t pray for long amounts of time. God just enjoys you telling him about your day.

You can talk to God about really big and important things too. Its not hard to pray if we follow similar to the prayer that God taught us in the Bible:

“Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name.

Your kingdom come.

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts,

As we forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” (Matthew 6:9-13 NKJV).

So, this month try to take some more time to really talk to God everyday.
