Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Here is how I incorporate this prayer when praying for my family. I really like this pattern because it keeps me focused.
Praying the Lord's Prayer, daily
And I can pray through the various sections in a short time. Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Before we begin asking God for things for ourselves it is so wonderful and important to focus on his glory and holiness.
It moves our gaze away from ourselves and up to the living God. I praise you for your steadfast love and your mercies that are new every morning. Psalm says:. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! So before I begin to ask God to bless me and my family, I usually try to begin by giving thanks to him. And beginning with thanks helps us not forget all the ways he has blessed us already, before we ask him to bless us again.
It also strengthens our faith in how generous and gracious our heavenly Father is.
How the Lord’s Prayer Teaches Us to Pray
So I pray that the Lord would bring his rule into the world. That he would save multitudes in every nation, and our nation. I pray that he would raise up laborers to go into all the nations and proclaim the gospel, and I pray that his kingdom would come in my town as well. Then I pray he would bring his rule into the lives of my family — me, Kristi and my children , every one of our grandchildren, and every single descendant until Jesus returns. I pray that he would save every one who is not yet saved, and that each and every one of us would follow Jesus wholeheartedly as disciples as long as we live.
That Jesus would be the king of our whole family. He cares about whether we have enough food and whether the bills get paid. I ask our heavenly Father to bless and provide for me and Kristi, and each one of our children and their families.

I ask him to provide for every need that we have — physical, spiritual, and emotional, knowing that he loves to give good gifts to his children. We can have faith that God loves to answer prayers for provision. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. As he says in 1 John :. My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
And in 1 John If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
