The Lord’s Prayer is far more than a memorized set of words. It is actually the way Jesus taught us to pray.
But Why? Why Did Jesus Teach Us to Pray This Way?
Are you like so many who know of The Lord’s Prayer but don’t quite grasp the depth and power behind the words? Do you desire to understand exactly why Jesus taught us to pray this way?
Maybe you would like the materials to teach your small group, Bible Study, or others the why behind The Lord’s Prayer?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, then I created this free prayer resource specifically for you!
Thousands of readers have come to my site for a post titled Why Is Praying the Lord’s Prayers a Powerful Way to Pray. That fact alone told me that many of us are longing to understand more about prayer and more about The Lord’s Prayer in specific. Something brings us back to this prayer again and again. We feel the power in it, but we don’t understand it.
We wonder – is it nostalgia? Or is there more?
The answer is yes. There is more.
Imagine the 12 Disciples, having given up everything to follow Jesus, they spent day and night with Him. They lived alongside Him witnessing His miracles, watching His prayer life and witnessing His relationship with His Father.
Next, take your imagination to the crowds of people drawn to Jesus. Listening and watching, they knew there was something different about Him. They, too, witnessed and experienced His healings and miracles. They gathered around Him longing for more. Often, they simply wanted to touch Him.
They chose Him and followed Him, yet all still wondered, “How do we pray?”
Jesus gives the answer to the 12 disciples when they ask Him as written in the book of Luke. Then again, he answers the question in Matthew 6:9-13. But this time, it’s not to just the disciples. It is to the crowds during the Sermon on the Mount.
In each scenario, He provides a framework for prayer. Not merely words to utter by memory. But a framework for connecting heart and soul to our Father.
He knew you and I would wonder. And as always, He planned well in advance to give us all we need to walk in relationship with Him. To grow deeper in our faith and to boldly approach the throne in prayer.
“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” -Hebrews 4:16 NLT
