When asked what they should say in prayer the Lord gives his disciples the “Our Father.” This prayer is considered a gift from the Lord and one that we should especially turn to in times of crisis. This series will go line by line through the prayer highlighting what it meant to Jesus’ first century audience and what it means for us today.
Session 1: Jesus: Model and Master of Prayer
Jesus not only preaches about the importance of prayer, he models it for us in the gospels. In this session we reflect on some scripture passages in the New Testament which show us how and when Jesus prays along with how he teaches us to pray.
