"Give us today our daily bread." Matthew 6:11

Within this short and prayer are four prayers worthy of note. I have shared two of them and with this post I share the third:

This is a prayer of gratitude and a prayer of contentment as well as a prayer of confidence!

How is it a prayer of confidence?

First, you can be confident in who is giving you the prayer. When Jesus teaches you a pattern for prayer you can certainly have confidence in that prayer!

Second, you can be confident in who you are praying to! Jesus gives you the prayer with the assurance that God will listen to this prayer!

Third, you can be confident in the content of the prayer! Jesus knows the Father and what pleases Him. Jesus knows God's will and what He wants to do. Jesus knows what you need to ask the Father for! Since Jesus is the source of this prayer you can pray it with confidence!

What is the point of praying if you do not pray with confidence? If praying brings you more confusion or doubt than you had before you prayed, why would you do that?

The Lord's Prayer is a pattern for praying confidently! You can be confident in a prayer that is given by Jesus to His disciples to please His Father!

So, when you pray according to this prayer you can pray with confidence!
