New Series: Pray Like Jesus

Image

The Lord’s Prayer is a beloved part of the Christian life. I can remember growing up in the Presbyterian Church in the small town of Hadley, PA reciting The Lord’s Prayer each Sunday. As child, when I memorized The Lord’s Prayer I had another part of the service that I could participate in- sermon’s were still a little over my head; singing was enjoyable; and I loved receiving communion.

Part of what I faced was that I would pray (or recite) The Lord’s Prayer without ever really thinking about the words. The prayer became rote. As I got older and studying the Bible more, the Lord’s Prayer is powerful. Maybe more powerful than most folks realize. To this end, in a previous church I wouldn’t use The Lord’s Prayer in worship until we had the opportunity to study it, to allow the Holy Spirit to help us see the prayer with fresh eyes and a soft heart for how Jesus taught his disciples how to pray.

This Sunday at Hope United Methodist Church, we begin a series on The Lord’s Prayer called Pray Like Jesus. Each week, we are going to look at a phrase of The Lord’s Prayer and how it informs us how we should pray, worship, and how we should live as followers of Jesus Christ. If you’re in the Dover area of Delaware, come out and join us this Sunday, March 9th at 9:30 a.m. in the Wesley College Chapel!
