The Prayer of Jesus

Posted By Communications on Jul 1, 2021 | 1 comment

Each week during this series, we will explore “The Lord’s Prayer” based on Matthew 6:9-15 and Luke 11:2-4. We will discover the common ground we appreciate in the prayer that Jesus taught to followers, and which we recite so often in worship. Throughout the series we will use different versions of The Lord’s Prayer each week.

July 11 – “Abba” Based on scripture texts from Matthew 6:9 and Romans 8:14-17 we will explore ascriptions for God, Jesus’ relationship with God, and our relationships with God.

July 18 – “On Earth As It Is In Heaven” What does it mean for us to seek God’s reign on earth? Matthew 6:10 and 16:13-20 will inspire us to consider how the disciples identified Jesus, and what Jesus came to show us about God’s desires for creation.

July 25 – “Give Us This Day” God provides sustenance for our spiritual and physical journeys. We will discover some of God’s “holy surprises” for us! Foundational texts include Matthew 6:12 and Luke 11:5-10.

August 1 – “As We Forgive” One of the most challenging facets of our lives of faith is forgiving others as God has forgiven us. Matthew 6:12 and Colossians 3:12-15 challenge us to put our faith into action as we relate to one another.

August 8 – “Deliver Us” No matter how hard we try to live a life worthy of our calling in Christ, there are always temptations, negative influences, and sins to reckon with. We seek God’s strength to deliver us from all evils. Matthew 6:13 and Psalm 121 will reassure us of God’s desire to give us the help and strength we need.

  1. I’m looking forward to this series and to re-reading “Prayers of the Cosmos: Meditations on the Aramaic Words of Jesus,” Neil Douglas-Klotz. these reflections will be helpful to see how language and culture impact my spiritual journey.
