As we journey into 2020 and all that it holds for us, it’s right that we take time to pray. Ever since the first century, the church’s prayer has been shaped by Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:5-15).
It strikes me that to pray as Jesus shows us is to have a balanced prayer life: caught up in adoration, keeping our perspective on God’s coming kingdom and not our own, relying on God for everything we need, aware of our weakness and filled with grace ourselves overflowing to others, trusting in the only one who can really protect us and keep us.
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray…”
Let’s follow our saviour’s example, as we feast on a healthy diet of prayer this week. Use this guide to widen your horizons and fuel your prayer as we set aside a whole week to pray together as a church. From Monday to Saturday we’ll journey through the Lord’s Prayer, bringing our church, our community and our world to God.
Pastor Adam Broughton Newcraigs Church, Kirkcaldy.
“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
