As we being to look at the Lord's prayer in Matthew chapter 6, we will be going through sections each week. This week we will be looking at the preface, 'Our Father in Heaven.' Before we look at the preface, a few notes about the Lord's prayer in general, many scholars have discussed if this prayer is to be used as a pattern or as a form directly recited. I believe it can be both. The danger comes when this

The following prayer was written by Philip Doddridge and is found in 'Piercing Heaven', links can be found below to purchase the whole volume.

We are about to begin a new sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer called “Pray Then Like This.” We will be spending nine weeks going through the Lord’s prayer found in Matthew 6:5-13. Many of us know the prayer from memory, but we might not stop and think of the riches found in this prayer. Often prayer is the least important part of our life, and we can see that from our planner. Prayer is a last resort but should

So many as can conceive prayer, ought to make use of that gift of God; albeit those who are rude and weaker may begin at a set form of prayer, but so as they be not sluggish in stirring up in themselves (according to their daily necessities) the spirit of prayer, which is given to all the children of God in some measure: to which effect, they ought to be more fervent and frequent in secret prayer to God, for

Brothers and Sisters, Greetings in the name of the Lord. We have arrived safely and are beginning to unpack our boxes. Stella and Calvin have adjusted well, so far. We would like to thank all of you for your prayers during this time. We have felt loved, supported and encouraged during this time. I wanted to say a Personal thank you to everyone who came by yesterday and moved things, unpacked boxed, cleaned, assembled, provided us food and drinks. From the

Psalm Two ends a similar way to the beginning of Psalm One. Psalm two ends with the phrase, “Blessed are all who take refuge in him” (Psalm 2:12b). Psalm one begins with “Blessed is the man … his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law, he meditates day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2). The two Psalms act as an introduction to the 150 Psalms.
