I was asked this past week about prayer. Prayer is always a subject of consideration in the minds of almost anyone religious who believes in a higher power that can hear them, numerous denominations and even religions use prayer as a central practice in their traditions. It was asked, “Is it right to say ‘Father’ many times in a prayer? I heard one prayer and he used the word ‘Father’ 39 times.” This was an excellent question because I too consider this question when I pray, and I imagine there are many that do. Am I using words because this is just the way I have always heard prayers and terms being used, or am I using the words because I have studied the authoritative use of them in scripture?
