- make your requests known to the Heavenly Father;
- submit to Him and ask for His will to be done over and above your will;
- then continue to walk according to His standards, resting in the faith that His will is being accomplished in your life.
Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward. But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
And when you pray, do not babble on like pagans, for they think that by their many words they will be heard. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
So then, this is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven,hallowed be Your name,Your kingdom come,Your will be done,on earth as it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread.And forgive us our debts,as we also have forgiven our debtors;And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from the evil one.’
For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours.
We walk by faith, not by sight.
