By John Piper About Prayer

Audio Transcript

Matthew 6:9–10: “Pray then like this, [disciples], ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done.’” The very first petition that Jesus teaches us to pray is Make your name great in the world. That should be the number one thing you pray for. How are you doing with that?

The number one prayer on your lips and springing from your heart, is “Hallowed be your name in my life, my family, my church, this city, this world. Oh, make your name holy, pure, righteous, set apart, valuable, big, one of a kind, magnificent. Show yourself to the world, God. Hallowed be your name.” That’s the number one petition in the church from your heart every day, and God the Son taught you to pray that. Therefore, God is teaching you to pray for the glory of God.
