Introduction “Teach us to pray,” one of Jesus‟ disciples asked him one day (Luke 11:1). Now--it wasn‟t that they were unfamiliar with the concept of sending speech or thoughts up to God in heaven. Their parents had surely taught them prayers in their homes when they were children. Each Sabbath they would light their candles and pray. Each Passover they would eat the lamb, hear again the story of God‟s miraculous redemption of his people, and thank him for his mighty acts on their behalf. They were regulars at synagogue worship and knew the temple rituals. But when they saw how much Jesus got out of his prayer time, when they saw how often and how intensely he spoke with his Father, they knew they were missing something important.

And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.” 5 And He
