If you could ask the first disciples, "What was the Savior's secret to living in alignment with the Father's will and with power to face life's challenges?" they would have answered with one word, "Prayer!" From the beginning to the end of Jesus' ministry, his disciples had a front-row seat to watch the greatest pray-er who every prayed. This study of the Lord's Prayer gets right down to the heart of life and faith. It looks at our deepest passion and longing...to know and experience God. Just like his followers asked him to teach them to pray two thousand years ago, we can make the same request today. 6 Chapters of discussion questions, articles, and follow through activities for groups and individuals will deepen your personal prayer times and your small group relationships.

Learn to Pray with the Master If you could ask the first disciples, 'What was the Savior's secret to living in alignment with the Father's will and with power to face life's challenges,' they would have answered with one word, 'Prayer!' As we learn to talk with the Father, we grow strong in faith and obedience. The Lord's Prayer is much more than a collection of words to be recited from memory. It is a Jesus-given springboard to launch us into the refreshing waters of God's wisdom and strength. When we learn to pray with Jesus, we become like him. Will you dare to echo the plea of the first disciples, 'Teach us to pray'?
