A format for prayer

Prayer is vitally important for our spiritual growth. We should endeavour to take time out for prayer every day. When we do, the Lord’s Prayer provides a model for us. Begin with praise and worship; it opens the mind and heart to God. We should tell God our needs; he knows what they are but he still wants us to ask. Ask forgiveness for our faults and weaknesses, as we forgive the faults of others. Seek protection for our vulnerability to the powers of evil. That’s four “P’s”: Praise, Petition, Penitence and Protection.
