Where Real Life and Faith Come Together
More help on prayer in challenging times. Yesterday's help focused on the phrase in the Bible, used more than 100 times, "Be not afraid." Today, a helpful reminder from the prayer of Jesus. Might be useful to remember how Jesus suggested we pray. Our Father who art in heaven God is our Father. We can trust Him. He loves us. He is also awesome and to be feared. But still we can trust Him. Holy is your name We honor God and revere Him for His holiness. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done. We pray for His will, not ours. That is crucial. We seek to align ourselves with God and His purposes. Prayer is not our wish list for Santa. We want to be in the will of the Creator. On earth as it is in heaven. We want earth to live in the will of God every bit as much as heaven does. Again, it is not our will or our wishes that we seek so much as it is to sit in the presence of God and be changed by Him. Give us this day our daily bread. We trust and depend on God. Not on our own resources. Not on the economy or the President. God is our help, our hope, and our Lord. And we seek His provision for today. Not for all time. He will provide for tomorrow when tomorrow comes. We will not worry about tomorrow. We ask for today. And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. God knows we have been selfish, and we have worried more about ourselves than anyone else. So we ask Him for forgiveness and we also ask for His strength to help us forgive other people who hurt us. We want forgiveness and we also need to be able to give it. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. God is our Father. We need His guidance and leadership. We want Him to direct our lives, not the President or the economy. God, keep my path straight. And the Kingdom, the power and the glory all belong to God. One final reminder of the One to whom we pray. It all belongs to Him. It is not about me. It is about Him. Prayer places us in the presence of the One who made us and loves us. It shifts your center of gravity from you to God. And that is the goal. In a tough time, we remember who is as the center. God.
What's Allen Up To?
The Allen Hunt Show is about faith and life, plain and simple. According to a Gallup Poll in May of 2005, 85% of Americans consider their faith important or fairly important to their lives. Yet there is a gap on the talk radio airwaves that examines where faith and life come together. This show fills that gap like nothing currently on the radio. This is not one more political talk show, nor is it another faith-based counseling show because ultimately, life is not about what is right or left, but about what is right and wrong. The Allen Hunt Show takes on real life issues, with real life people, to see how faith can have a real impact. Join us on Saturdays from 9-12 PM and Sundays from 6-9 PM. Blessings!
