How should we begin our prayers? Jesus demonstrates a model for prayer that pleases God. In this passage, we learn about the importance of adoration in prayer. Our human inclination is to reduce God to a deity that is there for our needs; but what we need to realize is that God loves us as Father, rules over us as King, and is worthy of all praise. Correct prayer ultimately aligns us under the awesomeness of God.
