Sermon | “Teach us to pray”
Texts: Genesis 18:22-33; Luke 11:1-4
Speaker: Joel Miller
One day Jesus was praying. Afterwards, one of his disciples, apparently speaking for the group, asks: “Lord teach us to pray.”
It’s a curious question. The disciples would have been around prayer their whole lives and no doubt had given it a try a few times themselves. They had been surrounded by liturgies, and blessings, and intercessions, and benedictions from birth to the present moment and yet they come to Jesus with this simple, loaded request: “Teach us to pray.”
And Jesus, for once, gives a pretty direct answer to an inquiry.
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
Father, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread.
