The author reflects on the prayer quoted on the Bible verse Matthew 6:9-13. He argues that this prayer is not as well known as it used to be as there has been a decrease in its usage which leads to lack of knowledge on how to pray. He states that the prayer taught by Jesus is the most reliable guide in how people speak to God and that they must have their priorities right in order to be equipped in praying. He concluded by saying that no matter whatever be the situation within a family relationship, family members can always talk to God in prayer.
