Lord’s Prayer

Lord's Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer is the most perfect prayer because it is Jesus praying the very will of God. The aim is that our children are not only able to recite the prayer at the end, but that they will understand and believe what they are praying.

Lesson 1: God sent His Son (Jesus teaches us how to pray)
(Matthew 6:9-14)

Jesus is our teacher and He taught us the Lord’s Prayer which is the perfect example of how we need to pray, everyday!

Lesson 2: God is our Father
(1 John 3:1)

God desires a relationship with us, Father to child. Praying is the way we speak to our Heavenly Father and build that relationship with Him. The Pharisee and the tax collector have very different ways of praying, but which one is talking to his Heavenly Father?
Lesson 3: God’s name is Holy
(Psalm 113:3)

There is power in the name of God because His name is Holy. We need to honour His name and use it for His Glory. Peter and John had nothing more to offer a lame beggar, but the powerful name of Jesus and it was more than enough!

Lesson 4: God listens
(Luke 11:9)

God is our loving, powerful Father who listens to our prayers. The neighbour who kept on knocking knew that eventually he would get his friend out of bed to answer the door. We need to believe that God will help us more than that because He loves us.

Lesson 5: God’s will be done
(Matthew 6:10)

Our will and God’s will are not always the same. We need to be praying for God’s will in our lives because He is our loving Father and knows what is best for us. God’s plan was for the Israelites to defeat the people of Jericho and enter the Promised Land. God’s plan was for Joshua to lead the victorious army but not in the way you might have thought… 

Lesson 6: God provides
(Matthew 6:11)

God is our loving Father, and He gives us everything we need so that we can live out His plans for our lives. Jesus shows His abundant provision by feeding 5000 men and their families from one little boy’s generosity. 

Lesson 7: God forgives
(Ephesians 4:32)

God is compassionate to forgive us of our sins when we ask Him to. Grace and mercy are free gifts that God gives us. There is only one condition though: we need to be just as forgiving toward others. Peter asks Jesus about forgiveness and Jesus tells Peter a story of a king who forgives his servant.

Lesson 8: God protects us from temptation
(Psalm 119:11)

Every day temptation tries to steer us away from God’s will for our lives. The only way to block that temptation is with the word of God. Jesus spent forty days in the desert being tempted to go against God’s will for Him, but Jesus defeated those tempting offers because He knew the word of God.  

Lesson 9: God rules
(Matthew 6:13)

Nothing and no one is more powerful than God. He is always in control, and He will never change. When we are aware of who we are speaking to when we pray, we begin to realise that the God we are addressing is far more powerful than anything we are facing.

Lesson 10: God is for everyone
(Matthew 6:9-14)

God is our loving Father who desires an intimate relationship with each one of His children. When God answers our prayers, we have a unique testimony to share with the world and bring them to Jesus too.
