Sunday to Monday / (Our) How Am I to Pray?

On Sunday Pastor Dave focused on the Lord's Prayer and the use of plurals (our, we, us) and how it is communal in nature. 

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

The power, and the glory,

For ever and ever.

Amen.

 Here's some thoughts for this week:

  • “Our Father …”  What does it mean to you to know that you do not pray alone?  (Luke 11:1-13)
  • Who do you hope prays for you?  Who do you pray for?
  • “Give us each day our daily bread…”  What does your body need to survive?  Has God provided it?
  • “Forgiveness of sin …”  For what do you desire to be forgiven, who do you need to forgive? 
  • “… do not lead us into temptation …”  What temptations do you struggle with?  Do you want those temptations taken away?
