Looking good and having it all together are valuable traits in our society. But when we're completely transparent, we'll admit that no matter how hard we try to clean ourselves up, there's always something inherently wrong. We'll always need God's forgiveness. Alistair Begg cites the Lord's Prayer and the specific phrase, "Forgive us our sins". More
When You Pray, SayMartin Luther referred to the Lord’s Prayer as "the greatest martyr on earth," because it was used, he said, so frequently without thought or feeling and without reverence or faith. In our Christian lives, nothing is more important, and nothing more difficult to establish and maintain, than a meaningful prayer life. Although we can find time to do just about everything else; good things, industrious things, ministry things, it seems that when we get to the issue of prayer, everything works against us. When we look at the Lord’s Prayer, we realize that there is much instruction contained in it. We shouldn’t think of it as something that is simply liturgical. Rather, we ought to consider it a realistic help to us in establishing our own prayer lives. As Christians we must be committed to seeing prayer become a central part of our daily walk with Christ. Prayer shouldn’t be supplemental - it should be fundamental. In this series Alistair Begg explores what it means to use the Lord’s Prayer purposefully, seeking to understand then apply the principles it teaches.
