Praying With Jesus

Praying With Jesus

The words of the Lord’s Prayer are perhaps the most recited in all of human history. But what exactly is the Lord’s Prayer? Jesus offered these words as a template for prayer and a pattern for understanding our relationship with God. Join us for the final message in Fully Devoted as we learn to pray like Jesus. 

Passage:

Luke 11:1-13

Principle:

To live like Jesus lived, we must pray like Jesus.

Practice:

Know God

  • Our Hallowed Father
  • More reliable than our closest neighbor or most trusted friend
  • More loving than your own father or than you would be to your own children

Understand His plan

  • Heaven’s invasion of earth

Depend on Him

  • His provision
  • His grace and mercy
  • His guidance

Await His response

  • And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.  – Luke 11:9-10
