The prayer of Jesus is perfect. In particular, the Lord’s Prayer sets the paradigm for our dialogue with God. Jesus teaches us how to address God, what to ask for, and in what order to do so.

Do I use the Lord’s Prayer during each day? When I have a spare moment, do I utter these words of Jesus? When I am in need or encounter other who are, do I have recourse to prayer?

Dear Jesus, thank you for teaching us to pray and how to pray. May I always be ready to turn to God in the gift of prayer.
