Prayer is one of the most important things we can possibly do in our lives. It is one of the greatest spiritual sacrifices we can offer up to God. Christ’s model prayer teaches us to recognize the supremacy of God the Father and outlines elements of what our prayers should entail. We must search the scriptures to understand the will of God and persevere in praying that His will to be done in all things and for all men.
