The Lord’s Prayer is the church’s basic prayer guide. With six simple imperatives, it covers those areas of life that Jesus considered most important for human flourishing. New Testament scholar, N.T. Wright has written, “…the Lord’s prayer is not so much a command as an invitation: an invitation to share in the prayer-life of Jesus himself… (The) Lord’s prayer becomes an invitation to share in the divine life itself. It becomes one of the high roads into the central mystery of Christian salvation and Christian experience…” (N.T. Wright, The Lord’s Prayer as a Paradigm of Christian Prayer.)
Through this Lenten series, we will saturate ourselves in the prayer life of Jesus, learning to call out to God according to HIS priorities for life.
