The Lord’s Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer is something that comes to mind when most people think of prayer.
It comes to us from Luke 11:1-2 and Matthew 6:9-13
Jesus was asked in Luke 11:1 to teach us to pray…
Jesus said pray in this manner: He didn’t say to recite a prayer so the Lord’s prayer is a model of how to pray. In fact Jesus said in Matthew 6:7 NKJV
"And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words."
Prayer is sometimes referenced as a pipeline to the ear of God. Many times in the gospel Jesus went to spend time with His Father in prayer.
