The Lord’s prayer, that is, the prayer the Lord Jesus had taught His disciples to pray, is the number one prayer we can pray and practice daily. The prayer, when believed, breaks the power of witchcraft. The prayer breaks the tendency to put the ‘self’ as center of our universe. The prayer destroys the lies and deceptions that the enemy of God has tried to use to entice even God’s people away from God’s plans and God’s kingdom!
God has a kingdom and He wants you to be in His kingdom, even when on earth. God has His will-best plan for you. God wants you to exalt His name above all names. God is our Father in heaven. God has daily provision for all your needs. God knows you will face temptation and He will lead you away from its snare. God forgives you just as you forgive others. God answers you when you cry out in trouble and delivers you away from evil.
Matthew 6 (ESV)
7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
