"Our Father..."

All of us want to have the internal resources to meet the external circumstances of our life in positive ways.  All of us want to connect with God in a life-transforming way. All of us want to experience the “good life” as it is best defined.  In what we call “The Lord’s Prayer”, Jesus teaches us a model or framework for interacting with God that forms and shapes us spiritually, mentally and emotionally to respond to live and life’s circumstances in healthy ways.  Jesus tells us what we can say to God and about God, what we can say to ourselves and about ourselves, and gives us categories to process the priorities, anxieties, guilt and fear in our lives. Please join us on this 7-week series to learn how to better pray as Jesus taught us to pray.

What is "The Lord's Prayer"?

The Lord's Prayer is a prayer given to us by Jesus himself.  In two places in the New Testament, he offers these words to his disciples to help them learn how to talk to God.  

Matthew 6:9-13

7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

9 “Pray, then, in this way:

‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
10 ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from evil. 
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]

Luke 11:2-4

(After the disciples ask Jesus to teach them how to pray)

And He said to them, “When you pray, say:

‘Father, hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
3 ‘Give us each day our daily bread.
4 ‘And forgive us our sins,
For we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
And lead us not into temptation.’”
