Pray: Matthew 6:9-13

Happy Sunday and another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. We finally got a little taste of slightly cooler air and it is wonderful! The windows are finally opened for the first time since May! Thank you God! 

Today our challenge hostess is our amazing Lisa and the scripture she chose is from Matthew and one that we all know so well.
Matthew 6: 9-13 "This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'
I do believe that we do all now the Lord's prayer. We say it at every mass. Let me ask you a question - how often do you talk to the people you love? Your spouse, your children, your sisters and brothers, or adult children? Probably every day or even several times a day! Do we talk to God that often? Do you think maybe we should? Relationships need communications and our relationship with God does too. So often we can go along just fine until something happens in our lives that knocks us to our knees and then we pray! Or we say the prayers we know so well without really thinking of the words and what they mean. We need to make time for daily prayer, make it a priority in our life.

I made this card for someone who is in great need for prayer - someone who was knocked to his knees. These stamps are from ODBD and I used the cracked glass technique to age the image and the words a bit.
