The “Lord’s Prayer” is actually the “Disciples’ prayer” because Jesus did not need to pray for forgiveness.
It’s truly a “model” prayer because he says this is HOW you should pray, not this is WHAT you should pray.
It contains 6 petitions. The first 3 focus on God; last 3 on human beings.
- Hallowing His name
- Advancing His Kingdom
- Enforcing His will
That’s interesting and surprising because God wants us to pray about concerns that focus on Him that He is perfectly capable of doing without our asking Him to do so. But God chooses to operate in response to our prayers.
- Give Daily bread
- Lead us not into temptation
How often do I/you focus on anything BUT these 6?
