The Requests of Prayer (Matthew 6:11-15)

Jesus is teaching his disciples how to pray in this section of the Sermon on the Mount. After showing us that we can call the Lord our Father, Jesus taught us to pray for God and his will to be praised. Our desire must be that God’s name be honored, his kingdom to continue to conquer evil, and his will to be accomplished on the earth. After teaching us to request things for God’s glory, Jesus teaches us the ability to make requests concerning our lives. In these next three requests we are learning something that should draw us closer to God and motivate us to pray. We can pray to our Father for our personal needs. So let us look at what Jesus says we should pray for when it comes to our needs.
