A Journey From Worry to Confident Hope: Praying Through the Lord’s Prayer
We often worry when faced with an uncertain future. In these difficult times, prayer connects us to God and energizes us to navigate anxiety with God. Yet, we often do not know what or how to pray.
The Lord’s Prayer anchors us to Jesus’ own petition for provision and protection. In this Bible Plan, these familiar words will encourage you to prayerfully journey from troublesome worry to confident hope.
"And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. “This, then, is how you should pray: “ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from the evil one.’
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
Matthew 6:7-13,31-33 (NIV)
