This Sunday we will begin a four part sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer. I hope these sermons will shed some light on a prayer that we pray every Sunday. What do the words of this prayer mean in light of our worship and our own lives?
We will delve into the themes of the prayer, look at scripture which supports the petitions we find and question how the prayer reflects on our actions.
Sermon One: Thy Will be Done
Scripture Focus: Revelation 11: 15-19
The first sermon focuses on the opening words of the Lord’s Prayer. Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as in Heaven.
Sermon Two: Daily Bread
Scripture Focus: Exodus 16: 1-18
The second sermon deals with two petitions found in the Lord’s Prayer. Give us today our daily bread and forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Sermon Three: Deliver Us
Scripture Focus: Matthew 4: 1-11
The third sermon focuses on the aspects of the Lord’s Prayer which deal with temptation.
Sermon Four: The Power and the Glory
Scripture Focus: Isaiah 60: 19-21
We bring it all together in the final sermon with word’s of praise for God.
I hope you will be able to join us for this four part look at a prayer which has been a central part of the Christian faith for centuries.
