Regardless of the area of life, when something becomes personal, it matters more to us. In fact, when something isn’t personal, it rarely keeps our attention, affection, or passion. If this is the case, how do we make faith personal in order to make it last and make the most of it? The good news is that Jesus described the kind of relationship he wants with us, and he was clear—it’s personal.
Prayer can be a challenging thing. If we are brand new to it, it can be awkward and clunky. We can pray all our lives and still wonder if it works. Regardless of our experience, most of us have the same question: how do we get it right? Well, Jesus directly addressed this. He said, “this is how you should pray…”. And what he describes over the next few verses is something far more than words.
