RESET: Week 1

Reset: The Lord’s Prayer
April 7-8, 2018
Scott Davis

  • Icebreaker Question: Were you taught any prayers as a child? What is one of the earliest ones you can recall?
  • What challenged you, confused you, or changed you during the weekend’s message?
  • The sermon dug deeper into our motive and intent behind prayer. Our motives ask: what drives you into prayer? Our intent asks: what’s your desired outcome with prayer?
  • Read Matthew 6:9. Jesus introduces the Lord’s Prayer by inviting us to call God, Father. How easy or hard is it to call God your Father? Why?
  • Read Hebrews 5:7. This passage gives us an insight to why God listened to Jesus’ prayers while he was on earth. If God heard Jesus because of reverent submission, what does that mean for you when you pray?
  • Read Luke 23:46. Scott taught that as Jesus breathed his last, he prayed to his Father. Why should we pray when we believe it won’t change the current situation?
  • Life at Home: How has reciting the Lord’s Prayer been a part of your life? Feel free to close your time as a small group reciting the Lord’s Prayer together. The traditional text is below:

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
