For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Prayer is enabled by the Spirit, directed to the Father. Not just the Father of Jesus Christ, but our Father!
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name
Yes He is “Our Father!”
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
We have His name! But He is not the Father of all.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
If God is your Father – you can talk to your Father.
If God is not your Father – you can be adopted today!
