Prayer for Everyday Life

There’s a lot that the Bible has to say about prayer. But there’s really only two passages of Scripture where Jesus tells us how to pray. That’s in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:5-13) and Luke 11:1-4. What does Jesus do in the Lord’s Prayer? More than giving us the exact words to pray, he gives us a pattern; a model of prayer. But along with giving us a pattern of prayer, Jesus also teaches us about the Fatherhood of God, the kingdom of God, the will of God, forgiveness, temptation, and more. In this, Jesus models prayer for everyday life.
