Hear His Voice
If we look analytically at the Lord’s Prayer, the principal example of how we should pray given to us by Jesus, we can get another glimpse of the role played by prayer in discerning his will for our lives. We find these three main elements: 1. acknowledging who he is : Our Father who art in heaven . . . 2. affirming his agenda : Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 3. asking for his help : Give us this day our daily bread and forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Prayer is the method and the Holy Spirit is the mechanism whereby God has given us the ability to discern his direction in our lives. If you are confused about what God expects of you, pray.
