Have you ever noticed how Jesus introduces the Lord’s Prayer?
“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13, NKJV)
Jesus says, “In this manner…” The idea here is that he is giving us an outline for prayer. While many people enjoy reciting the Lord’s Prayer as is–which is awesome–Jesus was telling us a deeper use for his prayer. It is a pattern prayer. An outline of how to pray.
In today’s episode, Bradley Thomas joins Bill Giovannetti to talk through what it sounds like to pray using the Lord’s Prayer as a template.
