Isn’t it wonderful that our Father in heaven made this world, us and everything in it.What an awesome Father we have.There is no-one like Him; we can’t have that special relationship with Him if we don’t know Jesus, and say He is not only our Father but my Father.For some of us, our Father is the only father that we have known, through our earthly father either dying or separating from the mother, leaving her to bring up the children on her own.He is also known as Emmanuel, meaning God with us, who is in heaven and is within us by the power of the Holy Spirit, thus confirming the creed : God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
He is also known to some as the beloved one – the dear one, because He has a special relationship with us.To others, God is our leader, He comes first in everything.There is a hymn – “Christ be my leader, by night and by day.”God is a father to us all, even though for some it is hard to think that way because of how their own father behaved towards them, for example alcohol abuse or sexual abuse, or he may have been an atheist.God is omnipotent, He is in us and in heaven too.We have a personal relationship with our Father that makes the Lord’s Prayer so special to us.
Question – Are there any more reasons why our relationship with God may be affected?If so, how can it be improved?
Do you believe that God is in your life now?
Think of all the wonderful things God has done for you.You could even write them down!

About the Book
Do we ever stop and think about what we are really saying to God, or do we pray monotonously every day with no depth or feeling, because we are on a spiritual low, or do we take time to think what we are really saying to God in our prayers and petitions to Him?
In today’s climate of our busy lives, it’s hard sometimes to sit down for five minutes and have our quiet time with God.The more time we spend praying and reading the Bible, the more time we want to spend with the Lord.We can start to teach our children from an early age to pray to the Lord.My son at the age of 4 could recite the Lord’s Prayer from start to finish without any interruptions.Children are the next generation of warriors for Christ.We need to encourage them to pray not just the Lord’s Prayer but any prayer.
Very often even the Lord’s Prayer becomes a ritual for some.This study book was written from the different ideas set out in our own fellowship group.It can be used for individual study or group study.Scripture references are provided, taken from the New International Version of the Holy Bible.
Before reading this study, ask the Lord to open your heart to Him in a fresh and new way each day.
