Outline of the Lord’s Prayer

index

One thing I try to do on a daily basis is pray through the Lord’s prayer.  I don’t simply repeat the prayer and say, “Amen,” rather I use the words as a frame work for my prayer.  Below is an outline I have used in teaching on the Lord’s prayer.

Father in Heaven: 1st We approach God through a loving relationship as Children
Holy be Thy Name: 2nd Before we ask God for anything, we worship Him
Thy Kingdom come: 3rd We ask God for His Kingdom to be realized more fully until it is ultimately fulfilled in eternity.
Thy will be done: 4th we humbly bring our requests to God in accordance with His Devine will.
This Day our Daily: 5th we come before God and humbly ask for provisions for the day, knowing we will come to Him again tomorrow and ask, give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts: 6th We ask God’s forgiveness for our sins and forgive the sins of others
 Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.  7th We ask for God’s help in keeping us from sin, and the attack of the enemy in ever aspect of our lives.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. 8th We acknowledge that in all things, His is the kingdom and the power and the glory.  We ask God that we might live for His Kingdom, by His power, and to His glory!
