TEACHING OUR HEART TO PRAY

Because the words of the Lord’s prayer are often prayed by Christians, they may become boring and lack inspiration for us. Some time ago, I became aware of the immense challenge and opportunity held in a particular part of this well-known prayer. “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”. Since then, When I join in praying the Our Father, I close my eyes and open my hands as a symbol of my willingness to change my heart. I often feel momentary tug inside of me when I speak those words. In a blink, I become aware both of the requirements to forgive and the recognition of anyone I might yet need to release from my stronghold on hurt. Reciting this prayer happens quickly during worship, but just as quickly, a bit more release flows through my begrudging heart.
