“Teach Us to Pray Pt. 1”

 Luke 11:1-4


Point 1: The Lord’s prayer is a model, not a mantra.

Six Elements to the Lord’s model for prayer:

  1.  Invocation – We welcome and recognize that God is our Father and those who believe are his children.
  2.  Consecration – We worship a holy God who is worthy of our reverence and to be set apart in our affections.
  3.  Domination – We long to see the full reign and rule of God on the Earth.
  4.  Supplication – We make requests of our Father as his beloved children.
  5.  Expiation – We confess our sins anticipating his mercy and likewise show the mercy we desire to others.
  6.  Temptation – We ask that as we follow God with our lives he would extend to us spiritual protection against the allure of evil.
