Discipleship

Our Pattern for Prayer

By Robert B. Munger
Not as duty but desire, not as law but love, not as demand but delight, not as necessity but privilege, not as ritual but relationship, not "in order to" but "because of."

Matthew 6:7-15, Luke 11:1-13

1. Acknowledgement for who God is, this worship as "worth" ship: Praise and adoration of Him who is worthy of eternal praise (Is. 6:1-8, Rev. 4 , 5) .

2. Response of our personal adjustment.

    1. Recognitionof God's Person, purpose, provision and Presence.
    2. Confession, cleansing, commitment of all to God.
    3. Petition: Asking and receiving of God's offered grace and help as He promised.
    4. Response:Letting God be God to us, in us and through us.

3. Communion with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit, three as One.

4. Intersession, Ministering before and with God for others.

5. Thanksgiving Honoring God with our trust and obedience.

II. Prayer as A.C.T.S.

A = ADORATION. "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name."

Not as duty but desire, not as law but love, not as demand but delight, not as necessity but privilege, not as ritual but relationship, not "in order to" but "because of. "

C = CONFESSION. "Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors."

T = THANKSGIVING. "For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever."

S = SUPPLICATION.

    1. Petition. "Give us today this daily bread . . . Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one."
    2. Intercession. "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

Amen means "So let it be!" An affirmation of the goodness and power -of God who has heard and is acting upon the prayer. "With Thanks giving."

(c) 1987 From the seminary notes of prof. Robert B. Munger
