Today’s Sermon: Seven Parts of a Man’s Heart

The Lord’s Prayer, which Jesus taught His disciples to pray in Matthew 6:9-13, consists of seven distinct parts. Each part represents a specific need in our life or an area that needs to be continually changed.

“Our Father” – the first part of the prayer knows God as our Father. It’s the paternal part of the prayer. I’m glad that God is a perfect Father, and He always has time for us.

The second part of the prayer is the presence part of the prayer where we focus on the blood of Jesus Christ and we praise His Name. The blood of Jesus testifies to what the Name of the Lord is all about in all of our lives, for the blood says we are righteous, and we hallow His Name.

The third part of the prayer is the priority part of the prayer, for we declare, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” When you say, “Thy kingdom come,” you are saying, “Jesus, be King on the inside of me. Produce Your righteousness, Your peace, and Your joy through me.”

The forth part is the prosperity part because God is eminently interested in every part of our lives. He said,“If you seek first the kingdom of God, then all these other things will be added unto you.” But we have not because we ask not. So He told us that we are to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” We need to pray specifically about what we need.

The fifth part of the prayer is the pardon part. That’s the part that we need every day.“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” We have to receive forgiveness before we can ever give it. You can’t give forgiveness if you don’t have it. But once you have it, you are obligated to give it.

The sixth part is the power part. That is where we ask God to lead us not into temptation and add, “Lead me by Your Word, O God.”

The seventh part is the praise part. As long as you keep praise on your lips, everything you pray about stays active in your life. The Psalmist said, “I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth (see Psalm 34:1)
