Words & Actions, Week 6 - Study Guide

Posted by Dana Bicker on

Is your prayer life satisfying? Do you look forward to your talks with God? Does your communication with Him give you spiritual strength?

This week (July 17-23), we will look at Luke 11:1-4. The text below is the NIV translation. Feel free to read this same passage in various translations to provide additional context.

1One 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:

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.’”
