Lord, Teach Us to Pray

person Rev. Dr. Chris Carrasco

Matthew 6:9-15; Luke 11:1-4

When the disciples plead with Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray,” Jesus responds with a sample prayer. This is the model Jesus created, and presumably used, for his prayer life. What does this model teach us about the important elements of prayer? While we say a version of this prayer every week, at times it can be so familiar and routine that it loses its power to shape our own prayer life. How might we understand this prayer from a whole new perspective? How does it teach us to pray?

Reflection Questions: How does the Lords’ prayer inform or shape your prayer life? What elements in it are easy to pray for you and what elements are more difficult? Rewrite the Lords’
prayer in your own words and allow it to bring you a whole new meaning.
