Week Beginning: Sunday 27th January 2013.

Question 3: Why and how do I pray?

Bible readings: Psalm 30, Matthew 6:1-5.

Discussion Questions:

1. As you read the Lord’s Prayer which phrases do you find are most encouraging and which are more challenging?

2. Why is praying in private different from praying in public with others?

3. What do you think “your kingdom come” might look like when this prayer is being answered?

4. In your life today are there ways you can make the Lord’s Prayer personal? For example a particular need for help in an area of temptation or an area of provision.
