In the 21 seconds it takes to pray the Lord’s Prayer and recite Psalm 23, you can change your life, writes Dr. Mark Rutland in “21 Seconds to Change Your World”. He recommends reciting the Lord’s Prayer (found in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4) and Psalm 23 at least five times a day. The Lord’s Prayer is the example Jesus gave His disciples and us as the model prayer. It contains praise, petition for God’s will, His provision and for forgiveness and protection from sin and evil and ends with praise.
Psalm 23 (called the King’s Power) was written by King David 1000 years before Christ was born, but it has a lot in common with the Lord’s Prayer. After a brief discussion of how to pray these two scriptures together, what follows is a comparison of the two and three different ways to use the prayers, including saturation prayer, meditational prayer and congregational prayer.
Some may shy away from saying a rote prayer, but any time you repeat scripture you benefit yourself. The Lord’s Prayer can help you in your prayer life and Psalm 23 can be uplifting and encouraging. If you are ready to experience prayer and an intimacy with God in a new way, you will find Dr. Rutland’s book informative and inspiring.
