The Lord's Prayer Tutorial
Transcript of The Lord's Prayer Tutorial
Jesus teaches us HOW to pray:
from the Sermon on the Mount:
Matthew 6: 9-15
Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name.
‘Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
‘Give us this day our daily bread.
‘And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
‘And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
your kingdom come...
your will be done...
hallowed be your name...
on Earth as it is in Heaven.
What is the context?
Acknowledge to whom you are speaking, and your relationship
Abba is the word used for father here, it means "Daddy" in Aramaic - conveys intimacy
The Father is in heaven, Jesus is on earth, the Holy Spirit is with Jesus. CHRIST is EVERYWHERE!
Heaven: a state of BEing with God in union NOT as a separate place
Heaven is also God’s presence with us NOW!!!!!!
Jesus began his prayer by praising God.
we ask for God to continue to bring God's kingdom into fullness here on Earth
asking God to lead us into God's will for us
Earth is to be like heaven!!
God wants us to carry out God's work here on earth now through us:
spreading the Gospel, caring for the sick and needy, loving one another in Christ’s name, encouraging one another, supporting one another in their faith.
Hallowed= May it be made holy (whole)
The Father’s Name is holy, sacred
By calling him holy, we affirm and acknowledge his holiness and offer him praise
Recognition of sacredness.
God's Kingdom is
Now with us, beginning with Jesus coming to earth as a man though not fully realized
Fully realized when we pass in to heaven
Continuing to come through the Holy Spirit working through us now in the world (God’s kingdom work)
God’s will = God’s way, God’s plan, God’s desires (Not our own!)
Trusting that God loves us and knows what is best
forgive us our trespasses (sins- our separateness)....
as we forgive those who trespass againgst us (those who HURT us)....
Confess our sins and ask God to forgive them - all those we've hurt.
Ask God to teach us to receive his forgiveness…in order that we might forgive others
READ MATTHEW 6:14
Choose to forgive
God commands us to forgive
God’s forgiveness of us demands our forgiveness of others
and lead us not into temptation...
but deliver us from Evil
When we DO face temptation:
God tells us he will not tempt us beyond what we can bear. (1 Corinthians 10:13)
Jesus has already won the victory over death
To see the Good, the True, and the BEAUTIFUL in every moment!
To give you self-control in order to resist temptation.
To remind you of scriptures (as Jesus did) to combat temptations.
To keep you from believing what you are not
To empower and strengthen you against anything trying to separate you from the Truth or seeing the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.
asking for God to keep us away from temptation...
It is presented to —Our Father,— thus stressing the communal dimension of all people who stand in prayer before God. We do not stand alone and must consider ALL - prayer is NOT MEANT to be ME and God.
