The Lord’s Prayer has been foundational for the prayer life of the Church. But sometimes we recite these words out of familiarity rather thinking about what we’re actually praying.

The Lord’s Prayer contains two main parts: 3 petitions directed to God and 3 petitions addressing our needs. In this sermon we’ll explore the first 3 petitions.
