This then is how you should pray.
That’s the passage before The Lord’s Prayer. Short. A mere 4 verses. But what is Jesus really saying?
In the first part of the passage, Jesus talks about this then is how you should not pray.
But is it like, I wish you wouldn’t pray like the hypocrites? Or maybe it’s, I’d like it if you could avoid praying like them. Or is it more like, you really need to ask for My help and try very, very hard to not pray like them? Or do you think it’s just a suggestion, as in it’d be nice to not be like them but don’t worry if you can’t help it?
Wait ’til you find out what they meant. It’s shocking if you’ve never noticed before.
