And When You Pray: The Deeper Meaning of The Lord’s Prayer

Singing Through the Lord’s Prayer

Matthew 6:9-13 – October 15, 2009

Listed below are hymns, gospel songs and choruses that correspond to the various parts of the Lord’s Prayer. I have found it helpful to sing my way through the Lord’s Prayer using these songs to focus my thoughts.

Lord’s Prayer People

Matthew 6:9-13 – October 13, 2009

The Lord’s Prayer answers the question, “What does Christian prayer look like?” Truly Christian prayer starts with God, moves to our human needs, and rises to God again.

Praying From the Footnotes

Matthew 6:13 – October 12, 2009

When we pray, we are to begin by asking that God’s name be hallowed and we are to end by praising God for his sovereign rule over the affairs of men. Thus the Lord’s Prayer begins with God and ends with God.

Deliver Us From Evil

Matthew 6:13 – October 11, 2009

This petition reminds us of how weak we really are. We are sitting ducks for the flaming darts of the devil. Unless the Lord helps us, we will not only face temptation, we will succumb to it every single time.

Does God Lead His Children Into Temptation?

Matthew 6:13 – October 10, 2009

“And lead us not into temptation.” Matthew 6:13a Before we begin: What is the difference between temptation and testing? How can a temptation to sin become an avenue for spiritual growth? Does God lead his children into temptation? This is not an easy question to answer. We know what the word “lead” means-or at least […]

Unless You Forgive

Matthew 6:12 – October 9, 2009

When we pray, “Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors,” we are asking God to forgive our sins according to the same standard we have used in forgiving the sins of others. When you pray this prayer you are really saying, “O God, deal with me as I deal with other people.”

Daily Bread Living

Matthew 6:11 – October 8, 2009

When you pray, “Give us this day our daily bread,” you confess that God is the sources of every blessing. Daily bread living means taking life one day at a time, being confident that God will take care of your needs day by day by day.

Nothing More, Nothing Less, Nothing Else

Matthew 6:10 – October 7, 2009

Praying “Your will be done” is an act of God-ordained rebellion. This is not a prayer for the weak or the timid. This is a prayer for troublemakers and rabblerousers.

Kingdoms in Conflict

Matthew 6:10 – October 6, 2009

“Your kingdom come” is not a passive prayer. If you ever decide to make the kingdom of God the first priority in your life, you may not become a missionary, but you will become fundamentally different from the world around you.

Taking God Seriously

Matthew 6:9 – October 5, 2009

When you pray, “Hallowed be your name,” you are both the voice and the feet of that petition. As the very words leave your lips, your life is part of the answer.

God Our Father

Matthew 6:9 – October 4, 2009

The Lord’s Prayer answers the greatest question of the universe–Is there anybody up there who cares about me? Is there anybody up there who knows my name? And the answer comes back-Yes. Yes. Yes. There is a God in heaven who cares about you. And he is called Father.

Invitation to the Heart of God

Matthew 6:9 – October 3, 2009

We approach the Lord’s Prayer with humility, saying with the first disciples, “Lord, teach us to pray.” Through prayer we journey from wherever we are on earth to the very heart of God.
