Do you remember the first time you heard the Lord's Prayer? Most of us not only can't remember when we first heard this prayer, we can't remember when we memorized it--because our memorizing was not a conscious effort; it was simply the process of hearing the words until they were part of our very persons.
Lent is an appropriate time to consider the prayer Jesus taught us to pray in a careful way. Participants will enjoy the many reflections and information the author provides. Each of the six sessions concentrates on a major theme or phrase of the prayer in the hope that we will be renewed in our reflections during Lent and intentional as we pray this familiar prayer. The Leader's Guides provide a structured session plan, complete with prayers, activities for all learning types, and teaching alternatives so that leaders can customize the session for their group.
The ultimate goal of this is is that participants will pause to think as they speak this prayer, allowing them to experience a more significant meaning in the Lord's Prayer.
