Glory Hallelujah!<br /><br />In the book of Luke, the eleventh chapter, our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us a powerful prayer to model. As I modeled throughout the week, the Spirit of God had my spiritual focus on two portions of the prayer continually. First, Jesus prayed in a certain place. What does that mean for me? Jesus being in a particular place teaches me the importance of the environment, both naturally and spiritually. In particular, where I am praying, and next, the territory I am praying over in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Second, the disciple wanted Jesus to teach him once he saw Jesus doing it. We are to do; then I believe others will model what we do - teaching them a modeled prayer glory to God. This portion is vital to the desire to host a Prayer Fair, so God revealing this to me in the first verse was so inspiring that my spiritual focus for this week solely rested here - giving God the glory for the illumination.<br />
