The Prayer of Our Lord

In speaking of prayers that have changed the world, we need to include the prayer that is the most common among people who follow Jesus: The Lord’s Prayer. Some have called it the model prayer for Christ’s church on earth, and in God’s wisdom it captures in prayer all of what it means to worship and live for Christ alone. How many times have you offered up prayers, only to find yourself doubting whether God will actually act? God reminds us through His word that He is not limited by even what we ourselves can think or imagine. How does this prayer change the world? God is powerfully at work in us, equipping us to be His agents of change in this world—just as He has done with Christ-followers of every time and place.

Scripture References: Luke 11:1-13

From Series: "Five Prayers that Changed the World"

Prayer is such a key part of the season of Lent—in fact, it is such a key part of the whole of life for God’s people. It is the means God has given us to communicate with Him, to share our cares and concerns, to call upon Him in praise and giving thanks. Intimate. Passionate. Expectant. Powerful. We call upon our gracious God, the Lord of heaven and earth. During our Lenten midweek services, we are looking at Five Prayers that Changed the World. Jesus’ power transforms lives, and the Spirit enlists the people of God to pray and anticipate all that God will do.
