Lord's Prayer Meditations: “This, then” is Normative

“This, then is how you should pray”

Meditation 1: “This, then” is Normative

Before addressing what prayer is, it is important to understand what Jesus means by saying this is our example of prayer. Jesus does not mean that this is the only way that we can pray but instead that this prayer contains elements that should be found in our prayers.

The Lord’s Prayer contains petitions built on God’s promises, dedications of life and needs to God and ultimately a confirmation of our salvation. Each of these elements should find themselves enumerated in our daily prayers.
