Jesus taught his Disciples how to pray in what is commonly referred to as The Lord’s Prayer. I tend to refer to it as The Disciples’ Prayer–not for the sake of being different, but to emphasize the fact that Jesus was teaching US to pray in that manner.
I taught a series of 12 lessons based on the words and phrases in the Disciples’ prayer to answer the question, “Why would Jesus ask us to pray this way?”. This series goes into depth on the following topics:
- In Heaven
- Hallowed be Your name
- Your kingdom come
- Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven
- Give us this day our Daily Bread
- Forgive us our debts
- As we forgive our debtors
- Do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one
- For Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever
Each of these lessons expands on a thought taken from the words and phrases that Jesus taught us in this prayer as shown above, and focuses on expanding the Christian’s understanding of how each of Jesus’ words is full of life and truth.
From today moving forward I will be posting these lessons here on the blog. Watch for them, read the notes, listen to the audio (when available), and comment! I’d love to hear what you think.
