Christian prayer, and even all human prayer, springs from the contemplation of the mystery and beauty of God on the one hand, and the presentation of our needs and petitions on the other, according to Pope Francis. And thus, the Our Father gets to the essence of prayer.
When we speak with God, the pope explained, picking up another reflection on the Our Father in the general audience, we are not “revealing to him what we have in our hearts.” “He knows much better than we do!” the pope assured. “While God is a mystery for us, we on the contrary, are not an enigma in his eyes.”
