When Jesus taught the disciples how to pray in Matthew 6:9-13, He did not intend for the disciples to only memorize and recite these verses. Instead, He was teaching them a memorization technique used by oral societies. Jesus was giving them a set of index sentences, which He intended them to use as an outline to pray. This lesson is long so I am going to break it up into a daily series. I hope you will come back and visit with the Lord in prayer this week as I teach you how to pray.
