Teach Us to Pray

Why does it often seem like a struggle to pray? When we bow our heads before the Lord, we find ourselves so easily distracted. Life gets so busy, we allow days, maybe weeks, to pass without drawing near to our Savior. At times, our words feel so empty or repetitive. We long for a deeper prayer life, but were do we start? In the Gospel of Luke, the disciples made a request that resonates with us: “Teach us to pray.” He gives us a model that can guide us as we approach our Father in prayer.

Can you imagine a hospital that only treated the healthy? What about a church that only welcomes those who are perfect? Jesus reminds us that there are no perfect people, we all need his grace and forgiveness. The church should be reaching out to broken and hurting people with the gospel.

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. As those who have been shown great forgiveness, Scripture shows us that we must learn to forgive others as well. This is not always easy, but the Lord will help us to let go of bitterness and resentment if we let Him.
