If we were to write what is known as the Lord’s Prayer, it probably would sound like this: “Our Father in Heaven, give us this day our daily bread. Let’s just get down to business. Here’s my list.”

There is a place for petition. There’s nothing wrong with asking the Father in Heaven for what you need.

However, let’s notice that the template for prayer Jesus gave us begins this way: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Luke 11:2 NKJV).


Greg Laurie is the pastor and founder of the Harvest churches in California and Hawaii and of Harvest Crusades. He is an evangelist, best-selling author, and movie producer. His new book Billy Graham: The Man I Knew (Salem Books) released April 13.
