The Lord’s Prayer
Luke 11: 1 “Jesus was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.”
This Sunday, we begin a series about the Lord’s Prayer. It was a prayer Jesus directed his followers to say when they wanted to learn how to pray. For many years, the prayer has been faithfully recited in churches as part of their worship to God. But, how often have we actually really considered what the words mean to our faith and to our lives. The first line: “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name” proclaims the majesty, power, and holiness of God. It lays the foundation of who we pray to, one who is worthy to be honoured and praised. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be exploring the meaning and power of the prayer Jesus taught.
