Sermon Questions

Lord, Teach us To Prayer

Richard White, Pastor

"Foundational Relationships in Prayer" - Matthew 6:5-15

  1. Most Christians feel as if they don’t pray enough or pray well.  What are you struggles or questions about prayer?
  2. Jesus refers to hypocrites and Gentiles in verses 5-8.  What makes their prayers ineffective? Have you ever fallen into the traps of these two groups in your own praying?  How could praying the Lord’s prayer by rote cause us to fall into the traps of these two groups?
  3. Is the Fatherhood of God a comforting or challenging truth to you? Why?  What do you think it means that God is Father? (John 16:27; John 17:23; Matthew 6:8, 32;  Romans 8:15; Luke 12:32).
  4. Why does Jesus teach us to pray to “Our” rather than “My” Father”?
  5. What is the significance of God being our Father “in Heaven”?
  6. Galatians 4:6,7 speaks of sonship and slavery.  What are characteristic marks of one living out of the spirit of sonship? What are the marks of one living out of a spirit of slavery (orphan spirit)?   Read through Luke 15 and the story of the prodigal son.  In what ways did both brothers (younger and older) struggle with the spirit of slavery (an orphan spirit)?
  7. How does an orphan spirit (spirit of slavery) show itself in you with regard to your relating to God?
  8. In what ways is Jesus teaching you, in this prayer, to embrace your sonship?
  9. How might this address Jesus teaches (Our Father in Heaven) become a more foundational aspect of your praying?
