Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Model Prayer

Most of us learn the Model Prayer, or the Lord's Prayer, early in our Christian walk. Many years ago, I was taught to use this as an outline for my own time of prayer. When I pray without using this model, I tend to focus on petitioning God for things either in my own life, or the lives of others, and my prayers tend to be rather short. However, when I follow this model, I'm quite often surprised at how long I've prayed and find myself wanting to spend more time in prayer. Through this guided Christian meditation, you will spend two-minutes silently praying in each of the six different areas Christ outlines in this model prayer. In total you will share more than 12-minutes of quality prayer time with him. Lord, teach us to pray.

Regular readers will notice that I now offer the Mindful Worship Premium Edition. I will continue to publish a free guided Christian meditation at the first of each month, but the other weeks will be available only to subscribers of the Premium Edition. The cost is only $10 for a 3-month subscription and will help me to continue publishing high-quality Christian guided meditations. I invite you to join Mindful Worship and receive a new guided meditation each week for less than a dollar each. If you have questions or comments about the Premium Edition, please contact me.

    I love the Lord’s prayer to begin with so when I found that this is what we were meditating on I was over joyed…I found this meditation to be very deep and it helped me with something that has been weighing heavy on my heart for a couple of weeks now. I just joined Mindful Worship tonight after using the free meditations all week.. I am very glad that I’ve joined and plan on telling others about it. I have been into meditation for over a year now but this site is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I am thankful that the Lord led me here…

    I am in agreement to April’s message!

    This is a beautiful anointed and reflective prayer.

    God Bless you, Ricky
