My family remembers my Grandpa Dierking as a man of strong faith and prayer. But it wasn’t always so. My aunt recalls the first time her father announced to the family, “We’re going to start giving thanks to God before we eat.” His first prayer was far from eloquent, but Grandpa continued the practice of prayer for the next fifty years, praying often throughout each day. When he died, my husband gave my grandmother a “praying hands” plant, saying, “Grandpa was a man of prayer.” His decision to follow God and talk to Him each day had changed him into a faithful servant of Christ.

The Bible has a lot to say about prayer. In Matthew 6:9–13, Jesus gave a pattern for prayer to His followers, teaching them to approach God with sincere praise for who He is. As we bring our requests to God, we trust Him to provide “our daily bread” (v. 11). As we confess our sins, we ask Him for forgiveness and for help to avoid temptation (vv. 12–13).

But we aren’t limited to praying the “Lord’s Prayer.” God wants us to pray “all kinds of prayers” on “all occasions” (Ephesians 6:18). Praying is vital for our spiritual growth, and it gives us the opportunity to be in continual conversation with Him every day (1 Thessalonians 5:17–18).

As we approach God with humble hearts that yearn to talk with Him, may He help us know and love Him better.

Thanks for joining us for another daily encouragement from the daily bread devotional.

Today's reading titled man of prayer was written by Cindy Hesse Casper. My family remembers my grandpa dear king is a man of strong faith and prayer, but it wasn't always so.

My hat recalls the first time. Her father announced to the family were going to start giving thanks to God before we eat.

His first prayer was far from eloquent, but grandpa continued the practice of prayer for the next 50 years. Praying often throughout each day when he died. My husband gave my grandmother a praying hands plant saying grandpa was a man of prayer. His decision to follow God and talk to him each day changed him into a faithful servant of Christ.

The Bible has a lot to say about prayer in Matthew six verses nine through 13 Jesus gave the pattern for prayer to his followers, teaching them to approach God with sincere praise for who he is as we bring our request to God we trust him to provide Our Daily Bread as we confess our sins, we ask him for forgiveness and for help to avoid temptation, but we aren't limited to praying the Lord's prayer. Ephesians 618 tells us God wants us to pray all kinds of prayers on all occasions. Praying is vital for our spiritual growth and it gives us the opportunity to be in continual conversation with him every day.

As we approach God with humble hearts that you're in to talk with him. May he help us know and love him better. Today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Matthew chapter 6 is nine through 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 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us of the evil one.

Let's pray heavenly father, thank you for the blessing of prayer and how you use it to teach us to draw us closer to you. Thank you for your loving acceptance whenever we call on you.

It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
