The Prayer of Our Lord

March 9, 2016 ()

Bible Text: Luke 11:1-13 |


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.
