Teach Me to Pray Our Father Day 1

Our Father Who Art in Heaven

Keeping a Prayer Journal

 Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. Matthew 18: 19-20 NIV

For the next six weeks, the Take It Home will offer you opportunities to flex and develop new prayer muscles. We’ll be using 5 styles in our daily individual and family prayers. Our first tool, a prayer journal or log can help you to see the long view of your conversations with God, especially his part of the conversation. Over the next 6 weeks, besides our personal needs it is important to be praying for common needs of our Trinity family. Use a tablet or journal to write under the headings: your individual prayer needs, your small group needs and Trinity needs and pray. Your journal may contain your written prayers or may simply be a log of prayer points. Over time, when you feel the Lord has met your prayer needs make a note. Give testimony, reach out to your group or your pastor with your experience. Hearing these stories brings praise to God!

Each week’s study of the Lord’s Prayer will help you identify new prayer needs. Matthew 18:19-20 talks about the power of God’s people being united in prayer. Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring unity in our prayers during this series.
