“Jesus, Teach Us to Pray.” — “Pray then like this . . .”
Meaningfully Using “The Lord’s / Disciples’ Prayer”—from Matthew 6:9-13
If you had the opportunity, what would you ask Jesus? Our question would say something of our priorities. Among the many things Jesus’ disciples asked was for Him to teach them to pray (see Luke 11:1-4). Great news, we get to listen in on Jesus’ seminar on prayer, studying Matthew’s recording of it. Since Jesus gives us the perfect model, we are wise to learn to follow it / Him. Let us pray!
Jesus Starts With the Heart:(Matthew 6:1-8)
-Don’t Pray like Religious Hypocrites—show time!
Desired the praise of people. Pride much?
Had their reward in full–recognition by people.
-Pray in Private to Your Father: He sees and hears you! (Psalm 139)
