When his friends asked Jesus how they should pray, he gave them the brilliantly succinct guide we know as “The Lord’s Prayer." Far from a stifling imperative to get prayer “just right,” the Lord’s Prayer can serve as a liberating roadmap and compass for all of our conversation with God. 

In N.T. Wright’s insightful language, the prayer facilitates movement “from paranoia to prayer; from fuss to faith,” gradually bringing about a change not so much in the content of our prayers (our needs are still real and God takes them seriously), but in priority (we begin to recognize that there is a larger picture—a coming kingdom—that contextualizes and dignifies our current struggles.) We’ll spend a day together exploring each clause of the Lord’s Prayer through teaching, story, discussion, and song—and we’ll create space for direct conversation with the Jesus who teaches us still.
