Prayer must be paramount in the life of believers. Jesus gives us a model for prayer, which includes asking for forgiveness and forgiving others (Lk. 11:1-4). It allows us to identify our sins and repent, and this should spur us to forgive others who are also forgiven by God.
The more we seek forgiveness and choose to forgive others, the more we allow God’s kingdom to come by yielding to His will. Mary subjected herself to the will of our Father and brought our Saviour into the world. May our prayer lives help us to be saviour for others.
Lord Jesus, You revealed that God is our Father. Help us to imitate your practice of prayer, so that we may repent of our sins, grow in holiness and say “yes” to Your will. Amen.
