I Cannot Pray If…
I CANNOT SAY OUR ;
if my religion has no room for others and their needs.

I CANNOT SAY FATHER ;

if I do not demonstrate this relationship in my daily life.

I CANNOT SAY WHO ART IN HEAVEN ;

if all my interests and pursuits are in earthly things.

I CANNOT SAY HALLOWED BE THY NAME ;

if I, who am called by His name am not holy.

I CANNOT SAY THY KINGDOM COME ;

if I am unwilling to give up my own sovereignty and accept the righteous reign of God.

I CANNOT SAY THY WILL BE DONE ;

if I am unwilling or resentful of having it in my life.

I CANNOT SAY ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN ;

if I am not truly ready to give myself to his service here and now.

I CANNOT SAY GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD ;

if I am not expending an honest effort for it or by ignoring the genuine needs of my fellow man.

I CANNOT SAY FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US ;

if I continue to harbor a grudge against anyone.

I CANNOT SAY LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION ;

if I deliberately choose to remain in a situation where I am likely to be tempted.

I CANNOT SAY DELIVER US FROM EVIL ;

if I am not prepared to fight in the spiritual realm with the weapon of prayer.

I CANNOT SAY THINE IS THE KINGDOM ;

if I do not give the King the disciplined obedience of a loyal subject.

I CANNOT SAY THINE IS THE POWER ;

if I fear what my neighbors do or say to me.

I CANNOT SAY THINE IS THE GLORY ;

if I am seeking my own glory first.

I CANNOT SAY FOREVER ;

if I am anxious about each day’s events.

I CANNOT SAY AMEN ;

if i don’t honestly say “cost what it may, this is my prayer.”.
