Luke 11:1-4 Teach Us To Pray
Not only is it convicting that Jesus' disciples ask for help in their prayer life, but they also ask for it in the context of community! Who is your "us" that prays together? Who is your "us" that seeks to better learn to pray together? In this section of Luke, we all learn about prayer from Jesus.
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say: “ ‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’ ”” (Luke 11:1–4, NIV)
