In the Lord’s prayer we invoke the name of our God. We look at exactly what we are doing when we say the name of the Almighty God and we’ll take a few minutes to see who exactly he truly is.
Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath. That’s a strong statement, but consider, how close are you to anyone with whom you never speak? In our world we need to be in person, on the phone, something within hearing distance – even a recording to communicate with another. When it comes to God, think a word and your Lord hears it perfectly, knowing exactly what you mean. This Sunday we begin a new series on the Lord’s Prayer.
Racism, jealous, and divine discipline can be extreme topics. That is where our study of the book of Numbers finds us this morning.
“Teach us how to pray!” was the plea from the disciples to Jesus. The prayer that Jesus gave bears his name – The Lord’s Prayer. That prayer is said at least weekly in Christian churches around the world, but the words of that prayer are not so much a what to pray, but a how to pray. This Sunday in our Bible study we’ll take a look at the Lord’s prayer, and prayer in general.
