    Why dont people pray according to Jesus' directions? He says to pray the 'Our Father" but we pray specifically?

    I'll give you one better, why don't people follow his commandment to "call none father except our father in heaven?" Or one better still, why was the martyr Antipas( Revelation 2) called that? his name literally means anti-pater, or father. But he was very obviously godly. So what father was he being "anti" to? Then, when did Pastors start being called Father's? We are called to be Judges, and that isn't only as in law judges, but like the book. In Judges they're called Deliverers of the people. But there's an issue with it, in Judges things get really bad really quick. Judges is summed up by the last verse, "in those days there was no king in Israel, every man did what was right in their own eyes." Many Christians have no king, so they do what is right in their own eyes. So, that is the answer to your question.

    that was to the church who didnt really know God. For example if I barely knew you I would say"Hey, Joe" buut if I really knew you that I would talk diferently and if you were my best friend I could talk to you about personal topics.

    Christ did not command everyone to pray. That was commanded to the Israelites to pray "Our Father"...

    That is why it starts off "Our Father" Not Everyone Father
