Lenten Sermon Series:  Praying Like Jesus

Only once in the gospels do the disciples of Jesus ask him to teach them something: they ask to be taught how to pray.  In response, Jesus gave them a simple prayer that has been a centerpiece of Christian worship ever since.  We call it the Lord’s Prayer—and we repeat it together every Sunday.  In this series of messages, we will be focusing on this prayer phrase by phrase and trying to understand how it can enrich our prayer lives.
