Thank you for this thread. I’ve always loved the Our Father because it starts out with praise and quickly moves into asking God to keep us safe and give us what we really need. I feel it validates petition in prayer and that Christ was telling us it’s okay to ask!

Christ doesn't just tell us it's OK to ask. He insists that we should ask ... repeatedly and at length..
See Luke 18:1-8, for example.
