In the summer of 2019 Pastor Scott gave a 7-week sermon series focused on the meaning of the Lord’s Prayer for​​ today. Jesus taught his disciples what is now the best-known prayer in Christianity as a result of a request from his disciples, “Lord, teach us to pray.”​​ Prayer is one of the most basic and potentially most transformative spiritual practices of our faith.​​ The seven-week series examines the Lord’s Prayer line by line as we seek to understand the life of prayer for Christians. How does God answer prayer? How do we Presbyterians understand prayer? If we are reluctant pray-ers, can the Lord’s prayer teach​​ how​​ to pray? We consider these and many other questions about the life of prayer. Each Sunday many gathered after the service for an illuminating exploration of the sermon, providing a nuanced, contemporary understanding of the Lord’s Prayer. Sermon audio links are below.
