WEEK 1: Practicing The Lord’s Prayer
Read Luke 11:1-13
What stands out to you from this reading? Take some time to prayerfully ask the Lord to speak to you from his word.
The Lord’s Prayer begins with the simple address, “Our Father.” What does it mean to you that God is your father? Jesus goes on to describe his Father, explaining he is the Father who is “in heaven.” God is like an earthly father in so many ways, and yet he is unlike all fathers “in earth” in that he is perfect. He will never fail us, abandon us or abuse our trust.
A good father, a heavenly Father, gives life and sustains it. What do you need from your Heavenly Father today? What would you want to say to him in prayer?
Recite the Lord’s Prayer three times today.
Have you made plans to meet with your small group this week? Write down a prayer request that you want your small group to pray over and share it with them.
