When Jesus responds to His disciples’ request to teach them how to pray, He teaches them the Our Father. In this prayer we are invited into the intimacy of divine love.

The prayer of a Christian should resemble the prayer of the Lord ’s Prayer? Do I have the courage to enter communion with God?

O gracious God, thank you for the gift of prayer. I am humbled by the invitation to dialogue with you. May my heart be enlarged by my prayer.
