Matthew 6:9

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

 

This is the beginning of a section of Scripture generally known as the “Lord’s Prayer”. It is important to know that Jesus never “prayed” this Himself, as it is a model after which we can pattern our prayers.

The first guideline we notice for all prayers are that they are to be directed to God the Father, in acknowledgement of His sovereignty over the universe. The second aspect that all prayers should include is worship, ascribing praise and honor to Him who is worthy of it.
