Matthew 6.9-10

Christ teaches that prayer focuses on our Father. Therefore, we must be His sons in order to be heard. Only God’s sons can truly pray for His name to be set apart and honored above all others. Only His people pray for His Kingdom to come. Only His people deny themselves to see His will done. We cannot become sons through our labors because we would never deserve the title. However, God in His grace names us as His when He calls us out from the world.
