The Priorities of Prayer (Matthew 6:9-10)

We are studying the model prayer that Jesus gave for his disciples as he teaches them to pray in the Sermon on the Mount. The first declaration of the prayer that Jesus gives us is to understand that God is our Father. Understanding this should change everything about our desire to pray. Seeing God as our perfect Father who draws us into relationship with him so that we can be his children. We noted in the last lesson that there is a structure to this prayer. The first three requests are directed toward the glory and praise of God. The final three requests are directed toward the needs of the disciples. In today’s lesson we will look at these first three requests that are directed toward God and his glory.
