Sermons on the Lord’s Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer is like six pegs on which you can hang all our prayers.
Suppose you are praying for a friend or family member who needs help or support in some way. What you ask for this person belongs under God’s provision. But then, what should you pray for this person under the other petitions of the Lord’s prayer? For example, what temptation will this person need to overcome in the challenge they are facing? Where will it be hardest for them to do God’s will? The Lord’s Prayer is given to shape our prayers. It teaches us how to pray.
