Understanding God as Our Father in Prayer

Updated: Apr 26

The concept of understanding God as our Father is pivotal to the way of prayer, as highlighted in Luke 11:2, where Jesus teaches us to address God as "Our Father in heaven." This foundational perspective influences the depth of our prayer life, as recognizing God as Father is essential for a meaningful spiritual connection. The notion of "Abba Father" as described in Romans 8:15 emphasizes a deep, personal relationship with God, fostering a sense of belonging and acceptance.


This relationship challenges and transforms any misconceptions about God, purifying our understanding of His nature and actions towards us, and setting a groundwork for engaging with the Divine even in secret and public places. Many individuals bear emotional scars due to inadequate parenting, which can distort their perception of God. However, the Holy Spirit, through the spirit of adoption, reveals God's paternal character, enabling us to approach Him boldly and confidently as His children, assured of our place in His love and covenant.


The Bible, particularly 1 John 3:1–2 and Romans 8:38–39, affirms the unbreakable bond of love between God the Father and His children, assuring us that nothing can separate us from His love. In prayer, we are invited to come before God, acknowledging Him as a loving, generous, and caring Father, and to seek healing and correction for any misconceptions caused by past experiences of inadequate fathering. This realignment with God's true nature allows us to approach Him with both boldness and reverence, grateful for His unwavering love and commitment to us.


May the peace of God dwell within you throughout this week. If you've been touched by today's message and wish to explore deeper faith, join us for Sunday services at AFM in Canada. Together, we can grow in love, strengthen our community, and uplift each other in our spiritual journeys. We look forward to welcoming you into our family. Blessings and grace be upon you.
