Mat 6:9 Lord’s prayer, ““Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

When we connect to God we reveal our dependence on him. Reveals our sin and His forgiveness.
