Are there times when we over-complicate prayer? Do we say more than we need to at times? Jesus teaches us that prayer is a common language that even children can master.
Jesus taught the disciples that prayer was based on approaching God with intimate language. We recognize God’s authority over us and also over the world. But that authority does not remove God from being accessible to the humblest of servants.
The Almighty Creator above us is intimately available to our mundane needs and problems. He is not unapproachable about physical needs, hurt feelings or the things we are afraid of.
The Living Bible writes ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ this way:
Jesus teaches that God cares about the littlest and the largest things.
