“Lord, Teach us to Pray” Summer Worship Series
What an awesome responsibility and joy that God has sent us little ones! How is God working through us to nurture their faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ? How are we receiving from them to grow in our own faith, hope, and love? In praying these questions, God led me to plan for this summer’s worship series: “Lord, Teach Us to Pray.” Each Sunday, we will learn a word or phrase of the Lord’s Prayer, the prayer Jesus taught his students and followers when they asked, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).
Beginning preparations, I am in awe how this prayer bubbles up from the entire salvation story we are given in the Bible. Jesus lives this prayer and he gives his life to us as we pray.
Over the years, visiting with people whose mind cannot keep track of the present, deep in memory’s recesses, unforgotten are hymns and the Lord’s Prayer. May we all learn for our lives Jesus’ prayer for us.
Each week we will receive an insert with daily Bible readings that deepen and widen the Lord’s prayer. The children will also receive their own copy of an illustrated “The Lord’s Prayer” book. May Jesus help all of us, no matter how old we are with his life of prayer.
