The Lord's Prayer

Throughout the entirety of human history people have been praying. Even with all the diversity among religions in the world, almost every religion has some kind of prayer – an attempt to communicate with something greater, and to ask something of that higher power. In this six part series, The Lord's Prayer, we will break down the most famous prayer ever, line by line, and reveal how its truths apply to us and our prayer lives today.

Week 6 // "And lead us not into temptation..."
2/14/16 // Pastor Lee Rutter

OOPS!  Due to technical difficulties, we are unable to post this sermon.

Week 5 // "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors"
2/7/16 // Pastor Alex Alexander

Perhaps the most challening part of The Lord's Prayer is found in the petition to "Fogive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."  Jesus is essentially saying that unless we forgive, we will not be forgiven. Even in the midst of a difficult word from the Lord, there is hope and encouragment to be found.

Week 4 // "Give us this day, our daily bread."
1/24/16 // Pastor Jeremy Self

Are you self-reliant or God-reliant? Does the petition from The Lord's Prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread" really call us to surrender?

Week 3 // "thy will be done on earth, as it is heaven"
1/17/16 // Pastor Lee Rutter

When we pray first "Thy will" and then go to God with our requests, "Give me", then our heart will be truly satisfied, because we will trust that what is taking place in our lives is truly what is best for us.

Week 2 // "Thy kingdom come..."
1/10/16 // Pastor Alex Alexander

What do you think of when you think of the word kingdom? These three little words present three big questions: Whose is the kingdom? What is the Kingdom? How does the kingdom come?

Week 1 // "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name..."
1/3/16 // Pastor Charlie Harrisberger

The verses in Matthew 6 just prior to The Lord's Prayer speak of the reward of prayer. What is our reward? The answer is found in the opening line - our reward is the Father himself.
