Daily Prayer | Matthew 6:5-15 Bob Glahn, Missionary September 16, 2019

In Matthew 6:5-15, Jesus provides a model for believers to develop a godly prayer life. 1. Motive in daily prayer (6:5-8)

Where you pray (5-6)

How you pray (7-8)

2. Priorities in daily prayer (6:9-13)

For Him (9-10)

For us and Him (11-13)

3. Fellowship in daily prayer (6:14-15)

God's part - initiating

Our part - imitating

Questions to Consider 1. What was the primary motive of the hypocrites in prayer (6:5-8)? What should our motive be? 2. How does Jesus’ model for prayer contrast with the prayers of the hypocrites (6:7-13)? 3. From the order and focus of the prayers in Jesus’ model, what should our prayers focus on first? 4. What does the statement in Matthew 6:13, “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” mean? How does James 1:13-15 help guide our understanding? 5. What did Jesus mean when He said, “But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions” (6:15)? How do Ephesians 4:32 and 1st John 1:9 help us understand Jesus’ warning?
