In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus instructs us how to pray. In Matthew 6:9, we start by praying, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.” The names, titles and descriptions of God can be used to grow in our relationship with God and in our understanding of who God is. They bring a new and fresh revelation every time we pray. We can do this simply by declaring who God is and by thanking Him for who He is every situation.
