THE LORD'S PRAYER
Adapted from outline by Dr. Larry Lea
OUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN.
Picture the Cross and thank God that you can call Him “Father” by virtue of the blood of Jesus.
HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME.
Praise God for who He is, “Our Father” and for all He has done for you.
Hallow or honor Our Father by praying the names of God, affirming who He is:
FATHER (God our personal Father)
YAHWEH (God. “He is”)
El Shaddai (God Almighty)
ELOHIM (God, Strong One)
El Elyon (God Most High)
El Olam (Everlasting God)
YAHWEH YIREH (God our Provider)
YAHWEH NISSI (God our Banner, who fights for His people. God is our means of victory.)
YAHWEH RO’I (God our Shepherd)
YAHWEH SABBAOTH (The Lord of Hosts)
YAHWEH ROPHE (God our Healer)
YAHWEH MACCADDESHCEM (God our Sanctifier)
YAHWEH SHALOM (God our Peace)
YAHWEH TSIDKENU (God our Righteousness)
ADONAI (Lord God our Master)
YAHWEH SHAMMAH (God who is there)
YOUR KINGDOM COME. YOUR WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
Pray for God’s Kingdom to come (righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit Ro. 14:17) for:
Yourself and your family (spouse, children, other family members).
Your church (pastors and leaders, the people in the congregation, to answer God’s call to go and make disciples).
Your nation (city, state and national political and spiritual leaders, and transformation).
The peace of Jerusalem (Ps. 122:6).
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD.
Declare Matt. 6:33 in your life. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Affirm God’s will to provide for our church and for your needs asking for His provisions, being specific and expectant.
AND FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS AS WE ALSO HAVE FORGIVEN OUR DEBTORS.
Confess any sin and ask God to forgive you. 1 Jn. 1:9
Forgive and release others - set your will to forgive those who sin against you. Eph. 4:32
AND DO NOT LEAD US INTO TEMPTATION, BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL.
Put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Belt of TRUTH
Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS
Feet shod with the PREPARATION (READINESS) OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE
Shield of FAITH
Helmet of SALVATION
Sword of the Spirit, which is the WORD OF GOD
Pray a hedge of protection around yourself, your family and the church. (The Lord is your refuge, your fortress, your God - Psalm 91:2)
FOR YOURS IS THE KINGDOM AND THE POWER AND THE GLORY FOREVER. AMEN.
Make faith declarations, be bold in faith - God hears and answers prayer (John 5:14-15).
Return to praise and thanksgiving.
