Many people call the prayer found in Matthew 6 “The Lord’s Prayer” because Jesus prayed it. However, it is more accurately called “The Model Prayer” because Jesus was not giving us a spiritual incantation to recite; He was teaching His disciples how to pray to the Father.
Lord, Teach Me to Pray in 28 Days by Kay Arthur is an inductive study of not only the passage found in Matthew 6, but also of other scriptures about prayer. It will guide you step by step, precept upon precept, into the real truth about what the Bible says about prayer – how to pray, when to pray, what to pray, etc. Each of the 28 days is a lesson which takes about 30 minutes to complete. At the end of 28 days, you will have a working, biblical knowledge of prayer. It is a great study to do this summer either alone as a daily devotional or with a friend.
