Matthew 6:7-15; known as The Lord's Prayer. The overall
Text starts with humility, admitting we need God's help; and ends
with being transformed by God's mercy and being compelled by it to
extend it to others in our life.
Also we learn what prayer is and isn't. Prayer is the
heart of a child of God crying out in praise and in need of help in
every area of life.
Prayer is not fruitful for those who don't know God as Father.
Meaning that those who persist in sin and unbelief shouldn't
expect anything from prayer. Rather, belief and humility (or
belief & repentance) are necessary. As 2 Chronicles
"IF" my people who are called by my name humble themselves,
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven and
will forgive their sin and heal their land."
