Praying as Jesus Taught
Prayer is actual communication with God.
- Lesson #1: Actually talk to God (5-6)
o He wants to talk and help. (7-9)
o Proof: “Our Father” (9)
- Lesson #2: Seek first God and His Kingdom (9-10)
o Prayer is 2-way communication.
o God wants to give you a heart like his.
- Lesson #3: Recognize your dependence
o For physical needs (11)
o For forgiveness (12)
o For deliverance from evil (13)
Take Home Idea: Pray with boldness, because God is your Father. Pray with humility, because you are dependent on him, and he wants to make your heart like his.
