DavidHymanWhat does it mean to pray to our Father?

Exactly how should we be praying? David Hyman of Holy Trinity Chatham does an excellent job describing the essence of prayer and the essentialness of prayer. 

The Lord's Prayer

11 Now Jesus1 was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray,gas John taught his disciples.” And he said to them, h“When you pray, say:

i“Father, jhallowed be kyour name.

lYour kingdom come.

mGive us neach day our daily bread,2

and oforgive us our sins,

for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.

And plead us not into temptation.”

And he said to them, “Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves,for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’;and he will answer from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I cannot get up and give you anything’?I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anythingqbecause he is his friend, yet because of his impudence3 he will rise and give him whatever he needs.And I tell you, rask, and sit will be given to you; tseek, and you will find; uknock, and it will be opened to you.10 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.11 What father among you, if his son asks for4 a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent;12 or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?13 If you then, wwho are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father xgive the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
