The Model Prayer, Part 3

After approaching God in praise, seeking God’s kingdom, and submitting to God’s will, then we are ready with the proper mindset to ask for personal petitions and needs. We pray for God to give us this day our daily bread. We trust in God’s daily providential care not just in our literal food, but for God to give us what we need in every area of our life. We also ask for God’s forgiveness, as we hopefully have graciously forgiven others.
