This week as we continue to look at Jesus’ sermon on the mount, we are looking at Matthew 6:9-15…
9 “Pray, then, in this way:
Our Father in heaven,
may your name be revered as holy.
10 May your kingdom come.
May your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And do not bring us to the time of trial,
but rescue us from the evil one.
14 “For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
This passage is commonly known as the Lord’s Prayer. We got an introduction to this passage last week.
As we look at the Lord’s Prayer, what stands out to you?
Why is prayer so important as a part of our relationship with God?
When you think about God, do you think God is distant or is God near?
Last week in we heard Matthew 6:8, that God knows what we need before we ask.
So I ask again, why is prayer so important as a part of our relationship with God?
A.W. Tozer said… “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
What do you think, when you think about God?
Let’s talk about it on Sunday.
Here’s hoping a song gets stuck in your head this week…
