Devotion for Weds in Lent 3

If I ever do this again, I will have written most if not all the posts long before Lent begins.  There are so many other things that crop up and I can’t rely on being in my writing head once a day, every day.

Luke 11:1–28

Prayer is an interesting idea.  At it’s heart is one speaking to the Creator of the universe because something is amazing and we feel thankful, or something is broken and needs fixing, usually it’s more of the latter than the former.  But this is the promise — God hears our prayers.

To pray the Lord’s Prayer is to approach the Creator of the universe with our thoughts, our petitions, our vote, if you will.  Citizenship in this kingdom is never at the whim of a leader or party but an expression of the “divine fatherly goodness and mercy” of the Most High God.

Luther was amazed by the simple gift of the Lord’s prayer, even simpler in Luke’s memory.  We should pray it, more often and with the confidence that our prayer is heard.  God is good.

    Thank you especially for this paragraph on prayer. Very helpful to me at this particular time. As with all things, each person has different needs at different times in their life. Can’t speak for others, but I DO read most of your blogs and devotions and they guide me in my prayer and thought life. The time & effort it takes to put this “out there” is quietly appreciated more than you might know. Pat
