How To Pray And How Not To Pray

A  Topical  Study

            In Matthew Chapter 6, Jesus gave us special instructions on how to pray and specifically HOW NOT to pray. He stressed the importance of keeping it private between you and God and then he stressed the importance of keeping it real without fake platitudes or repetitive phrases. As an example, he gave us a template to follow that's become known as The Lord's Prayer. In discussing these passages, we find enough material to offend just about everyone, the classic fundamentalists as well as the modern age charismatics. But as with all things, before accepting or rejecting what I say in this broadcast, keep an open mind while filtering everything through the scrutiny of Scripture.
