WHO DO WE PRAY TO?
The Lord’s Prayer could only have been given to us from someone who understands us deeply.
As you reflect on it in more detail in the following booklets, and use it as the framework for your relationship with God, you will see more and more how all-inclusive it is – both in its grasp of who God is, and how he feels about you.
It deals with all your needs, covering all aspects of your being – physical, psychological and spiritual.
It also opens your eyes to the amazing reality that God is on your side.
His passion for talking with you in an intimate way is something that will gradually capture your heart.
The Bible says that Jesus –
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. Philippians 2:6-7
Because he is fully God and fully man, it qualifies him to be the one mediator between God and you. (See 1 Timothy 2:5)
A mediator is someone who is a go-between between two people. That’s what he does with our prayers to God the Father.
For this reason, it is perfectly right to pray to Jesus when you want to thank him for all he has done for you.
