Jesus taught us how to pray and gave us the example in Matthew 6:7-13 (Amplified) Jesus said that "your Father knows what you need before you ask." "So when you ask," He said to "pray like this." Throughout the scripture we find the pattern for prayer involves praying according to the model of prayer that Jesus taught. -Praise and thank Him for who he is -Recognize and submit to His authority in Heaven and earth -Recognize that He gives you your daily needs -Forgive as He forgives you -Trust Him to lead you and keep you from evil Psalm 9 is one of those examples. It begins by expressing praise and trust in Him, knowing He will meet all our needs. "He does not forget the cry of the afflicted (the poor and the humble.)" (Verse 12b Amplified) We are not forgotten As you read this book you will find examples of how to keep your prayers in line with God's will and the way to find joy and peace while you wait for your answer.
