Lords Prayer For Feb 17 2010 Upload

  1. 2. How does God provide our daily bread? <ul><li>He makes the earth fruitful and blesses us with the ability to work for the things we need. </li></ul>
  2. 3. How does God provide our daily bread? <ul><li>Ps. 104:14 He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for man to cultivate—bringing forth food from the earth. </li></ul>
  3. 4. How does God provide our daily bread? <ul><li>Thess. 3:10–12 Even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat. </li></ul>
  4. 5. What does God want us to do for those who are unable to work for daily food? <ul><li>God does not want us to be selfish but to share with those who are unable to work and to include them in our prayers for daily bread. </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>1 Tim. 5:8 If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. </li></ul><ul><li>Heb. 13:16 Do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>1 John 3:17–18 If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Why does Jesus have us say “this day” and “daily”? <ul><li>These words teach us not to be greedy or wasteful or to worry about the future but to live contentedly in the confidence that the Lord will give us what we need. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Why does Jesus have us say “this day” and “daily”? <ul><li>Prov. 30:8–9 Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown You and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God. </li></ul><ul><li>Matt. 6:34 Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Why does Jesus have us say “this day” and “daily”? <ul><li>John 6:12 When they had all had enough to eat, He said to His disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” </li></ul><ul><li>1 Tim. 6:8 If we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. </li></ul><ul><li>1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. </li></ul><ul><li>Bible narrative: The parable of the rich fool (Luke 12:15–21). </li></ul>
  10. 11. The Fifth Petition <ul><li>And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. </li></ul><ul><li>Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. </li></ul>
  11. 12. What does this mean? <ul><li>We pray in this petition that our Father in heaven would not look at our sins, or deny our prayer because of them </li></ul>
  12. 13. <ul><li>We are neither worthy of the things for which we pray, nor have we deserved them, </li></ul><ul><li>but we ask that He would give them all to us by grace, </li></ul><ul><li>for we daily sin much and surely deserve nothing but punishment. </li></ul><ul><li>So we too will sincerely forgive and gladly do good to those who sin against us. </li></ul>
  13. 14. What do we confess when we pray this petition? <ul><li>We confess that we sin every day and deserve nothing but punishment. </li></ul><ul><li>Prov. 28:13 He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. </li></ul>
  14. 15. What do we ask for in this petition? <ul><li>We ask that our Father in heaven would for Christ’s sake graciously forgive our sins. </li></ul><ul><li>Ps. 19:12 Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults. </li></ul><ul><li>Ps. 51:1–2 Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. </li></ul>
  15. 16. What do we ask for in this petition? <ul><li>Ps. 130:3–4 If You, O Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? But with You there is forgiveness; therefore You are feared. </li></ul><ul><li>Luke 18:13 God, have mercy on me, a sinner. </li></ul>
  16. 17. Why do we include a prayer for forgiveness of sins in these petitions to our heavenly Father? <ul><li>We are not worthy of the things for which we pray and have not deserved them. </li></ul><ul><li>We therefore need God’s forgiveness so that we may pray to Him confidently and in good conscience. </li></ul>
  17. 18. <ul><li>“ Where the heart is not right with God … </li></ul><ul><li>it will never dare to pray.… </li></ul><ul><li>A confident and joyful heart can come only from the knowledge that our sins are forgiven” (Large Catechism III 92). </li></ul>
  18. 19. <ul><li>Gen. 32:10 I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness You have shown Your servant. </li></ul><ul><li>Ps. 32:5 I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”—and You forgave the guilt of my sin. </li></ul>
  19. 20. What does God want us to do for those who sin against us? <ul><li>Our heavenly Father wants us to forgive and to do good to those who sin against us. </li></ul>
  20. 21. <ul><li>Matt. 18:21–22 Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” </li></ul><ul><li>Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” </li></ul><ul><li>Eph. 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. </li></ul>
  21. 22. What does it show when we forgive others? <ul><li>It shows that we truly believe that God has forgiven us. </li></ul>
  22. 23. <ul><li>“Inasmuch as we sin greatly against God every day and yet He forgives it all through grace, </li></ul><ul><li>we must always forgive our neighbor who does us harm, violence, and injustice [and] bears malice toward us.… </li></ul><ul><li>If you do not forgive, do not think that God forgives you” (Large Catechism III 94–95). </li></ul>
  23. 25. <ul><li>Matt. 6:14–15 If you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. </li></ul><ul><li>But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. </li></ul>
  24. 26. Bible narratives: <ul><li>Joseph forgave his brothers (Gen. 50:15–21). </li></ul><ul><li>The parable of the unmerciful servant (Matt. 18:23–35). </li></ul>
