Lord Jesus, teach us to pray as you taught your disciples.
So He said to them, "When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Luke 11:2 (NKJV)
Father, please help me keep your name holy.
Give us day by day our daily bread. Luke 11:3 (NKJV)
Father, we look to you for our daily provision.
And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. and do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." Luke 11:4 (NKJV)
Father, help me stop "keeping score" and forgive those indebted to me.
I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs. Luke 11:8 (NKJV)
Father, thank you that I can turn to you for help at any hour of the day or night.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" Luke 11:13 (NKJV)
Father, please help me receive more of your Holy Spirit.
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; James 1:19 (NKJV)
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; Ecclesiastes 3:1,7 (NKJV)
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me be a doer of your word.
But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. James 1:25 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me look into that perfect law of liberty that you offer me.
Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. James 1:27 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help me see and help the orphans and widows in their hour of need. Don't let me be blinded by the world's wisdom.
when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock; Deuteronomy 8:14-15 (NKJV)
Jesus, thank you for bringing me living water out of the rock day by day.
A word received: Seek to see my glory and not the glory of man.
