WONDERSTRUCK

Not only does God give us a voice, but He invites us to use our voices with Him anytime, anywhere. Through prayer we are given access to approach the One who holds all things together—a breathtaking invitation, indeed. [Tweet this]

When asked how to pray, Jesus provided a specific prayer as a model known as The Lord’s Prayer. Set three alarms throughout the day. Consider 9AM, 3 PM, and 6 PM. When each one goes off, pray the Lord’s prayer aloud. Each time you recite, write down what changes you can make in your prayer life to more replicate Jesus’ prayer life.

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today 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 the evil one.” –Matthew 6:9-13

Wonder Challenge: Share the Lord’s prayer with others throughout the day on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK.

  1. Not to .long ago, I was up in the night…burdened and at a loss how to pray for for some very difficult situations….from the depths I cried….teach me how to pray here….and right there He brought to mind the Lord’s Prayer…it almost made me laugh…He answered me just like the disciples so long ago. I think for me, growing up in a tradition where the Lord’s Prayer was prayed rotely ,I think the beauty and the power we lost for me. Thanks for this reminder…I needed it today. Blessings

  2. Love being inspired by your ideas! They translate into something of my own when God invites me to listen to His word. Thank you!

  3. I have prayed the Lord’s Prayer as an “outline” to longer prayers. The first part being an adoration and giving of thanks, with the daily bread part being the part where I put in my needs, and then there’s forgiveness and confession and ending up with glorious thanksgiving.

  4. Margaret, you won’t believe but 2 devotions I read this morning (Eugene P’s & RC Sproul’s) both featured the Lord’s Prayer.

    I’m a great believer that God is wanting to say something to me when I receive 3 instances in the same day.

    Hmmm… so soaking in that, seeking to understand.

    Don’t you love how TM version ends with Yes. Yes. Yes.?

  5. Our church meets in my home every Sunday morning. About a year and a half ago, we started praying the Lord’s prayer together as our opening. We have all ages together, so engaging the children is something we work hard on, as well as teaching them quietness and listening. We noticed that my 20 month old son would stop whatever he was doing, become completely quiet, and listen in amazement as we all prayed the prayer together. He’s three now, and the Lord’s prayer is definitely his “cue” that church time has begun. He still stops chattering, gets very still and is picking up the words along with us. Seeing his awe at the prayer has made the rest of us cherish the words a bit more, too.

    […] Now you might say that’s only twice, so it’s just a coincidence. However, prior to that whilst eating breakfast I happened to read Margaret Feinberg’s daily email with the heading: “How can the Lord’s Prayer Transform you forever?” […]
