Our Father in Heaven
Passage: Matthew 6:5–6:13
The Lord’s prayer isn’t a prayer designed for us to simply recite the words. It’s a model for us to follow. Jesus didn’t say "pray these words exactly". Rather, He encouraged His followers saying "this is how you should pray". The first approach becomes a ritual, the latter shapes a relationship. In Matthew 6, we learn the significance of this special language called prayer.
