Matthew 6:7-15

For Jesus, prayer is action and action is prayer. We pray the Lord’s Prayer and as we pray it gives us our agenda for action in this world. Then our prayer will be more than words and we will be living in the Spirit of Jesus. Everything we need to say about who God is, who we are and who we hope to become is contained in this one prayer. In her book The Way of Perfection, Theresa of Avila advised her novices: “Pray the Our Father, but take an hour to pray it.”
