How to Pray

Pastor and Scholar Eugene Peterson told a story about asking one of his sick members, “Is there anything you want me to do?” To his surprise, the woman responded, “Would you teach me to pray?” Peterson had never been asked this and it shaped his ministry from that point forward.
This Sunday we look at a passage from Luke’s gospel in which Jesus’ disciples ask him, “Lord, teach us to pray.” What follows is instruction and stories. Take a look at the passage in Luke 11: 1 – 13. We see the first part of this passage as the giving of the Lord’s Prayer. But it is first of all a teaching on the important ingredients to prayer.
Take a look at the passage. What is Jesus telling us about prayer? We will explore this together on Sunday. See you then. Shalom,
