Praying the Lord’s Prayer with understanding, faith, humility and passion intentionally syncs us with God!
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven, (This establishes the syncing relationship)
Hallowed be Your name… (The first three petitions help sync us, as His allies, with what He is already doing in the world around us – we join Him)
10 Your kingdom come…
Your will be done…
… on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
(The second three petitions sync us with our Father by training us to embrace Him as the gracious provider for our deepest needs physically, spiritually and relationally!)
How is God syncing us with Him concerning our need and His giving of “forgiveness”?
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
How is God syncing us with Him concerning our need and His giving of “deliverance”?
SOLITUDE, SCRIPTURE, AND PRAYER
Find a quiet place and 15 minutes.
Solitude – Spend several minutes quietly alone. Take some deep breaths… Just be… … …Ask, “Holy Spirit, speak to me through Your Word!”
Scripture – Read slowly, out loud if possible, listen, reread, dwell, notice words & phrases you are drawn to & return there! (Sermon notes may help with understanding, but don’t stop there.)
Keep asking, “Jesus, what are You saying? Why this word this day?
What are You asking me to believe about You and about me? How am I learning to Sync up?
How do I join You today on Your mission and in my transformation?”
Prayer – Let your conversation with God flow from what He is saying then talk about what you notice is on your heart and also on your list.
