A mini-teaching on praying

Abba. thank you for blessing us with the privilege of coming to You in prayer - and being able to invoke the Name of Your Divine Messiah, who is the ONLY Heavenly Entity who has YOUR Name within his own!

(For those who didn't know this, to vocalize the Name of Y'shua (also written in English as Yeshua), is to acknowledge the power of YHWH to save us according to HIS Word!)

A mini-teaching on praying:

Matthew 6: 6. But when you pray enter your inner room and close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret[1] and your Father who sees in secret He will reward you in open.[2]

7. And when you pray, you should not be chatterers like the pagans, for they hope that by many words they will be heard. 8. Therefore, do not imitate them[3] for your Father knows what need you have before you ask Him.

9. Therefore, you pray like this: Our Father in heaven. Hallowed be thy name. 10. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. As in heaven so on earth.[4] 11 Give us the bread of our need this day. 12. And forgive us our offenses as we also have forgiven those who have offended us. 13. And not bring us into trial,[5] but deliver us from the evil one, for Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. (AENT)

[1[ See Psalm 91.

[2] The Aramaic word for “open” is b’gelya, which means “to reveal” or “revelation”. Y’shua resided in the Galilee which literally means the “land of revelation”, he is the revealed light to the nations (Yeshayahu/Isaiah 8:23-9:2).

[3] Prayer is a dialogue with Heaven, not a monologue. Y’shua’s teaching stands as the demarcation between relationship with YHWH rather than a religion about Him. Prayer is meant to establish and maintain an intimate relationship, and accountability between each individual and YHWH.

[4] Heavens always come before the earth in terms of the creation order, importance and having heaven’s laws rule on earth (Job 38:31-33).

[5] YHWH does not lead His people into “temptation”, but He does test and prove them. Deut. 13:3; Job 1:7-12; James 1:14.
