Jesus gives us the model of how to pray.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread.12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever Amen.
First Step to enter into prayer is Praise (Hallowed be) vs 9

21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Third Step to continue in prayer is Provision (Give us this Day) vs 11
Fourth Step to continue in prayer is Pardon (Forgive us our Debts) vs 12
