On Sunday, June 25, 2017 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Matthew 6:9-15. This message was part 8 in the “Sermon on the Mount” Series. Below are a set of questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion.
- Read Matthew 6:9-15
- What has been your experience with the “Lord’s Prayer”? Did you grow up praying this prayer? Heard it for the first time today? What was your impression of this prayer BEFORE the sermon today? Did anything change after hearing the sermon this morning?
- When you pray, it is important to remember who you are talking to. Take a moment and list out a number of characteristics of God that you can thank Him for as you begin praying.
- What are circumstances in your world today that make you long for the Kingdom to come, and God to make things perfect?
- What are some examples of “daily bread” that you typically ask God for? Are your prayers typically for you only, or are they for “us” (yourself AND others)?
- What is the connection between asking God for forgiveness and forgiving others?
- Do you remember that Satan is our adversary, and that He is real? Knowing this, do you regularly pray for God’s spiritual protection?
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
