Lesson on prayer!

Below is Jesus’s teaching on prayer, looks simple enough right?

Luk 11:1  And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

Luk 11:2  And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Luk 11:3  Give us day by day our daily bread.

Luk 11:4  And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

Now let’s see what it all means!

1)      How to begin

When ye pray say!

That’s it, no candles, no images, no schlepping yourself to church, just talk to God from wherever you are!

2)      Who to address

Our Father!

NOT Jesus!

3)      Whose name to revere

Hallowed be thy name

God’s name, Jesus always referred to God as “Father” “Heavenly Father”

As a Born Again Christian you are adopted into God’s family! So you now have the privilege of calling God Father, and thus Jesus becomes your brother!

4)      Whose Kingdom are we to look for

NOT the Kingdom of Heaven

But the Kingdom of God

5)      Whose will to obey

Thy will be done. As in heaven, so in earth

God’s will, NOT Jesus’

6)      What to ask for

Give us day by day our daily bread

Relying on God’s provision and not self

You may also ask for whatsoever you want here!

7)      How to keep a clear channel to God

And forgive us our sins

Remember you are a sinner like your father and mother before you, it won’t kill you is you ask for forgiveness every day!

8)      How to live with fellowmen

For we also forgive every one that is indebted to us

You want to be forgiven, so then forgive those that offended you!

9)      How to live free from sin

And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil

Rom 6:13  Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Rom 6:14  For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Rom 6:15  What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

Rom 6:16  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Rom 6:17  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Rom 6:18  Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Rom 6:19  I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

Rom 6:20  For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

Rom 6:21  What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

Rom 6:22  But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Rom 8:12  Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

Rom 8:13  For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
