LUKE 11:2c-4

ESTABLISH THE NEED:  If there’s ever a message that convicts all Christians, it is messages on evangelism and prayer.  All Christians could work on being more evangelistic and pray more.  It’s a convicting message today.  Let me ask you a question:  How often do you pray?

If we don’t know what to pray or how to pray, we would probably not pray.  When my sister brought a drum set, after she left for college, I looked at the drum pieces disassembled, I tried putting together, I beat around a little bit, but since I didn’t know how to put it together, or know how to play, I stopped doing anything with it.  That’s like our prayer life also.


Main point: We will see three principles that Jesus taught His disciples in regards to how to pray, so that you would know how and this knowledge would make you pray.

  1. You should pray seeking God first (2c-d)
  2. You should pray trusting for your daily needs (3)
  3. You should pray dealing with sin (4)


1 It happened that while [a]Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught his disciples.” 2 And He said to them, “When you pray, say:

   ‘[b]Father, hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
3 ‘Give us each day our [c]daily bread.
4 ‘And forgive us our sins,
For we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
And lead us not into temptation.’”
