What does it take to build a better, closer relationship? Time spent together. This works for our families (wife, kids, etc.), as well as with God. So, how do we spend time building that relationship? Same answer…spend time together. God has given us His word to study and learn and spend time in. God gave us the avenue of prayer to develop that relationship too. If we spend time reading God’s word and praying, we spend time with God. Reading the Bible gives us a close look at God’s relationship with mankind. We can’t know God’s will without spending time in His word. Prayer gives us the opportunity to open our heart to God even though He already knows what is on our heart. Prayer draws us closer to Him.

Think about the time and effort spent to grow closer to your spouse while you were dating. That is the level of effort we should apply to developing our relationship with God.

The word was the Lord’s prayer from Matthew 6:9-13. I sometimes struggle with prayer, making time to pray, maybe it gets monotonous at times or I don’t know what to say. I sometimes even struggle with what prayer does or how it works. But whenever I’m struggling with it, I use the Lord’s prayer as a basis for how to pray. Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name – we lift the Lord up, we want His name to be made famous, to be glorified.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven – We want to see His kingdom here on earth. We want His will to be done in our lives and in our world.

Give us this day our daily bread – We depend on Him for everything, even the simplest of things in food, we are dependent on Him.

Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors – We need the Lord’s forgiveness. We are forgiven and justified, but we still sin and we still need the Lord’s daily forgiveness in our lives. And then we take that forgiveness and we forgive others, we are gracious and merciful to others.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil – We need His help in everything, in turning from evil and towards Him, we need His help.

There are a bunch of things in this prayer that could be focused on, but since I don’t have much time, I thought I would focus on one theme. This prayer and all of our prayers, should be prayers of dependence. We are so needy and helpless and we need the Lord to work in our lives, even down to giving us our daily bread, giving us the energy we need for the day. Our world tries to tell us to be independent, be a ‘self-made-man.’ This is not the attitude of Jesus’s prayer. Jesus is the best human that has ever lived and it’s not close. Yet even He was dependent on His Father. What makes us think we can be independent from the Father if even His Son was dependent on Him?

So, if you are like me at all and you struggle with prayer. A good place to start is to grow in your dependence on the Father’s provision in your life, to grow in your dependence on the Father for forgiveness in your life, receiving and giving.
