The Abba Prayer

The Abba Prayer…

There are seminars, books, and teachings on how to pray. Jesus knows best and he taught you how to pray. He started out by saying, Our Father, just like it says we cry out, Abba.

That’s not even just Father, that’s Daddy. That’s the Hebrew Aramaic word for Daddy, a baby word. The Lord is saying forget all your ideas of prayer – the complexities, formulas, all the special things.

You can learn the most profound truths in the word Abba, Daddy. You don’t have to go to a seminar. Go to a cradle and learn from that little baby. He doesn’t know many words; there’s no liturgy – but when he’s sad or hurting, he cries out.

When you’re hurting, pour out your heart to God – that’s it. If you have a need, bring it to him. When the baby is happy, it laughs. When you’ve got a joy, share it with God. Let your joy overflow in praise.

No eloquent words, but simply like a baby resting in his Father’s loving arms. It doesn’t have to be eloquent, just pour out your heart to God. Keep it simple, keep it basic, keep it Abba.

The righteous cry out, and the Lord heard them; he delivers them from all their troubles. Psalm 34:17

Today seek to relate to God as His little child – get simple, get childlike, get to the heart – relate to Him as your “Abba.”

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
