Scripture:   Luke (NIV) 11:2  He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), “When you pray, say:  ‘(Our) Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.

3  Give us each day our daily bread.

4  Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.  And lead us not into temptation.’” 

Observation:     Jesus did not teach his disciples to pray:  Give me my bread; forgive me my sins; lead me not into temptation.  He was not teaching them to pray alone, but to pray as a group.  And when they pray as an individual, they should be consciously aware that they are not alone in following Jesus. 

Application:   In praying for my needs, I need to be more aware that those around me have needs too.  Even when praying for forgiveness, I need to remember others need forgiveness too.  When I come to the Lord with my sins, I can remember that others sin too.  I need the merciful God to forgive me in the same way my brother or sister needs the merciful God to forgive them.  I need God’s help in overcoming temptations, and those around me need God’s help also.      

Prayer:   Lord, we are a needy people.  We need your provision, your forgiveness, and your protection.  Amen
