It’s week two of four in Teach Us to Pray, our mini-series on the Lord’s Prayer. Here’s how you can prepare for our first week:
1. Read through our text, Matthew 6:9–13.
Last week was an overview on the whole prayer and some of the “why” behind Jesus’ charge to us: “pray then like this…” This week, we’ll focus on the phrase “Our Father in Heaven” before spending next week on the three “Your” statements (“hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”) and the following, final week on the three “Us” statements (“give us today our daily bread, and forgive us our debts…, and lead us not into temptation”).
2. Read, pray, and sing through the service:
CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 68:4–6
Before The Throne Of God (Charitie Lees Bancroft, arr. The Modern Post)
How Deep The Father’s Love For Us (Stuart Townend, Charlie Hall arr. Chichi Agorom, The Christian Year)
CONFESSION OF SIN: Matthew 6:25–27
ASSURANCE OF PARDON: Galatians 4:4–5
No Longer Slaves (Joel Case, Jonathan David Hesler, Brian Johnson)
GREETING, SERMON, & COMMUNION
RESPONSE: Song & Prayer
This Is My Father’s World (Maltbie Davenport Babcock, arr. Gungor)
