The Lord’s Prayer: “Who art”

The Lord’s Prayer, Part Two: “Who art”
(Matthew 6:9)

1. We pray to our present-tense God. (Exodus 3:14-15; John 8:58; Revelation 1:8)

2. We pray to our omnipresent Heavenly Father. (Psalm 139:7-10; Jeremiah 23:24)

3. Through prayer, we position ourselves near to God. (2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Colossians 3:3; Romans 8:1; James 4:8)

Application Questions:
Why do some view God as a past-tense God?
What is the significance of God revealing himself, to Moses and John, as “I Am?”
What are some of the ways in which we position ourselves closer to, or farther from, God?
How can praying the Lord’s Prayer aid us in the art of knowing God?
Pray using the Lord’s Prayer this week and really think about the words you are saying.

Prayer Focus:
Pray for our nation and for our leaders.
Pray the promise given to us in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
