Jesus gave his disciples the Lord's Prayer as a model of praying, for them and for us. This often repeated prayer can become so familiar that we do not give much thought to what each of the parts or petitions mean. This study opens new directions of the Lord's Prayer for us. It is grounded in what the words meant when Jesus gave them and goes on to show us what they can mean for the church today. The more we understand these meanings, the more the Prayer will take on deeper dimensions as we pray its words in groups and individually. This study will enhance our knowledge and strengthen our faith in the prayer Jesus taught.
Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding is a series of biblically based mini-courses that provides adults with a foundational understanding of the Reformed faith. Each six-session study-written by well-known and respected scholars-features Scripture, prayer, in-depth commentary, and questions for reflection. Each study addresses its subject from a Reformed theological perspective. Lessons are enhanced through the Leader's Guide, which offers helpful suggestions and direction for group study. The main structure for these guides is the rubric Head, Heart, and Hands.
